About the book

With Midwestern practicality and deft lyricism, award-winning author Erin Pringle has constructed “Unexpected Weather Events”, a collection of stories following irrepressible characters facing tough situations—cancer, mental illness, death. Set against winter landscapes and fading small towns, this collection illuminates how joy can flicker within unpredictable tragedy.

“Erin Pringle has done it again. In this clutch of grimly gorgeous stories, resilient characters navigate perilous conditions and deteriorating landscapes in their efforts to transcend, or at least come to terms with, the dicey, mysterious predicaments of their strangely familiar lives. The greatest graces afforded these pilgrims, not to mention us readers, are the sentences, coldly true and perfectly pitched, that pump their blood and afford them breath. Erin Pringle is not a minimalist, nor is she a language-for-language’s-sake lyricist, but her prose, its sound and its sense, is the heart of the book.” – Tom Noyes, author of The Substance of Things Hoped For

About the author

“Unexpected Weather Events” is Erin’s fourth book. She is also the author of the novel, “Hezada! I Miss You” (Awst Press, 2020) and two story collections, “The Whole World at Once” (West Virginia University Press/Vandalia Press 2017), and The Floating Order (Two Ravens Press, 2009). Originally from the rural Midwest, she has called Spokane her home for over a decade where she lives with her partner Heather, and son, Henry. They have two ridiculous dogs and two serious cats. By day she works as a Montessori preschool teacher, and for fun, she participates in triathlons and running races.
