This reading is part of the Raven Book Store's 30th Anniversary Extravaganza
Tilghman grew up in Manhattan, KS, from the time she was two until she graduated from the Manhattan High School. She received her BA in 20th Century Humanities and her MS in Journalism from the University of Kansas.
To the Stars through Difficulties is Romalyn’s first novel, which won the Independent Publishers (IPPY) Book gold medal award for contemporary fiction. It was inspired by the 59 Carnegie libraries built in Kansas in the early 20th century and has been described as “a love letter to libraries.”
