Bonnie Jo Campbell is a nationally acclaimed author of six works of fiction including American Salvage, which was a finalist for both the National Book Critics Award and the National Book Award. Women and Other Animals won the AWP Prize for Short Fiction. Her other books include Mothers, Tell Your Daughters, Q Road, Once Upon a River, which was adapted for film and released in 2020, and her latest novel released in January, The Waters.

Bonnie Jo, who lives outside Kalamazoo with her donkeys, is one of the major writers depicting rural life in America.
