Patricia Henley: Hummingbird House

The Ivy Bookshop

The Ivy is pleased to welcome Patricia Henley to discuss her Hummingbird House on its 20th anniversary tour.

Henley's powerful debut novel is the story of Kate Banner, an American midwife, who discovers the secret wars in Guatemala. Henley weaves her clear and powerful prose with an unforgettable story of a human heart unbinding itself in the most unjust of worlds.

Patricia Henley’s first novel, Hummingbird House, was a finalist for the 1999 National Book Award and The New Yorker Best Fiction Book Award. Henley has also written two books of poetry, Learning to Die and Back Roads, and four story collections: Friday Night at Silver Star,which won the 1985 Montana Arts Council First Book Award; The Secret of Cartwheels; Worship of the Common Heart: New and Selected Stories; and Other Heartbreaks. Her stories have been published in such magazines as The Atlantic Monthly, Ploughshares, The Missouri Review, The Boston Globe Sunday Magazine, and Northwest Review, and anthologized in The Best American Short Stories and The Pushcart Prize anthology. For 27 years she taught in the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Purdue University. She lives in Frostburg, Maryland.
