Home is a Made-Up Place

Author Ronit Plank's collection of short stories invites readers into the lives of people grappling with emotional injuries and confronting the past to become who they wish to be. It is the winner of Hidden River Arts' Eludia Award for 2020.

Home is a Made-Up Place is a collection of six short stories. The characters are real, and we see them struggle with important life decisions. The reader will experience all of the emotions the characters do - from anger and frustration, to acceptance.

Kirkus Reviews calls Home is a Made-Up Place, "A poignant and melancholy collection of stories about the constant search for a place to belong."

Marie-Helene Bertino, author of Parakeet, says, "Home is a Made-Up Place expertly plumbs the complicated and surprising depths of motherhood and daughterhood while introducing characters who thrill and linger."

Plank will moderate "Neither the Madonna nor Mommy Dearest: How and Why to Write Real Mothers" at the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) in Seattle, March 8-11. She will also host several signings at local bookstores in Seattle, including the following:

• March 9, 2023 - University Bookstore 6:00-7:30
• March 11, 2023 - Bad Jimmy's Brewery, Ballard 6:00-9:00
• April 4, 2023 - Ravenna Third Place Books 6:45-8:00

The author will also hold some East Coast events on the following dates and locations:

• April 15, 2023 - The Golden Notebook bookshop, Woodstock, NY
• April 20, 2023 - Author reading at the Norwalk, CT library

Home is a Made-Up Place is available in paperback and e-book, everywhere books are sold.
