Dana Green Book Launch

Dana Green lives in Colorado with her husband, where she teaches English and Creative Writing at the Early College of Arvada. Her collection of short stories, Sometimes the Air in the Room Goes Missing, was the Co-Winner of the 2015 Tarpaulin Sky Book Prize. How to Carry Scars is her first novel.

In "How To Carry Scars" Olivia and her mother obsess over memories. For her mother, compulsion is a need to document everything in her life. To preserve. Olivia's urge is to revisit the scars of her body, as places of destruction. Yet, as Olivia grows up, she discovers that she cannot always rend memory from herself; it can burrow itself into places so deep that she can't make them bleed.
