Fernanda Santos is chief of the Phoenix Bureau of The New York Times and the author of a new book, The Fire Line: The Story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots and One of the Deadliest Days in American Firefighting, just published by Flatiron Books/MacMillan. I had the opportunity to interview her for The Huffington Post last year which you may read here.
Santos is coming to Los Angeles in celebration of The Fire Line with a reading at Barnes & Noble in The Grove at Farmers Market.
From the publisher: “The Fire Line: The Story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots and One of the Deadliest Days in American Firefighting ... [is] a riveting, pulse-pounding narrative of an unthinkable disaster, a remarkable group of men, and the raging wildfires that threaten our country's treasured wild lands.”
Praise for The Fire Line:
“In Fernanda Santos’ expert hands, the story of 19 men and a raging wildfire unfolds as a riveting, pulse-pounding account of an American tragedy; and also as a meditation on manhood, brotherhood and family love. The Fire Line is a great and deeply moving book about courageous men and women.” —Héctor Tobar
