Novella Carpenter's father George officially went missing on October 17, 2009. When the town sheriff calls Novella, six days into their manhunt, she has no answers to offer. The truth is, her father had been missing for most of her life. George's disappearance begins a journey of discovery that carries Novella from her Oakland urban farm to her father's off-the-grid Idaho cabin. He eventually resurfaces, and Novella is forced to confront the reality that her time with her dad, who is in his seventies, is limited and if she is ever to restore their relationship, it must be now. Gone Feral: Tracking My Dad Through the Wild is the story of Novella's quest to find out who she is and where she came from. And now more than ever, it is urgent for Novella to find these answers because she is on the verge of becoming a parent herself.
Novella has a book event at Powell's from 7:30 - 8:30 tonight located at 1005 W Burnside in Portland.
