DMPL Podcast: Iowa Author Debra Landwehr Engle

Debra Engle podcast

On today's podcast, host Aaron Gernes talks with Iowa author Debra Landwehr Engle, whose novel Twenty came out this past spring.

It follows an Iowa woman named Meg, who, in the midst of grief, depression, and loss, makes a decision to take a mysterious substance that a doctor says will cause her to pass peacefully in her sleep in 20 days' time. The book follows those 20 days as Meg prepares for her death by reconnecting with her friends, her family, and herself.
