The Brooklyn author’s YA debut is a darkly funny tale about two strange new arrivals to Carbon County, Wyoming, a mysterious and tiny town on the brink of an unexpected oil boom. Cosmopolitan’s Anna Breslaw joins Schumacher in conversation. The program will also feature a hoop dancing performance from Bex Burton!
About End Times:
Before Daphne arrived, Carbon County, Wyoming, was just a regular small town that had fallen on hard times. When Daphne finds oil on her uncle’s land, their world is turned upside down. But the prosperity is punctuated by unbelievable phenomena and a message that seems directed at Daphne. Soon she makes a startling discovery: Carbon County is ground zero for the Rapture—but before the people of Carbon County are saved, they’ll have to fight.
