Kristen Radtke at the Dallas Book Festival

Saturday, April 29, 3:00 p.m.

Inspired by her encounters with unexpected loss, Kristen Radtke’s graphic memoir Imagine Wanting Only This takes readers on a journey across forsaken landscapes around the globe. In her search to discover the forgotten, Radtke uncovers much more than physical locations—she uncovers the touching stories of the people who once inhabited these now deserted places. Author Tom Hart describes this book as “riveting and glorious. A book of sorrow filtered through intellect. In Kristen Radtke’s hands, nonfiction becomes poetry.”
