Join Akash Belsare (Assistant Professor of English, University of Illinois Springfield) in conversation with Shelby Van Pelt, author of this year's Center County Reads pick, Remarkably Bright Creatures. The novel centers on Tova, an older woman still mourning the mysterious death of her son three decades earlier. Tova works the night shift cleaning up at a local aquarium; here, she becomes acquainted with Marcellus, a giant pacific octopus, and forms a special bond with him. Marcellus must help Tova learn what happened the night her son disappeared before it's too late.
