Colorado writer Dana Green will launch her first novel, How to Carry Scars, at BookBar. Her first book, a short-story collection called Sometimes the Air in the Room Goes Missing, was one of the winners of the 2015 Tarpulin Sky Book Prize. This novel is about the obsession of memories, of blood and family, and of the many kinds of scars we all lug through life.
