Galveston, 1932. It’s the Great Depression, but amid the decade’s economic desolation, the barrier island is alive with unforgettable characters — many of them Gulf Coast legends today — and a bustling nightlife filled with both entertainment and vice. Enter main character Evie, who came to Galveston to escape a dark past and start anew as a nurse. But the island has different plans for her, plans that introduce her to a world — that of competitive “dance marathons” — she could not have predicted. Join Texas Writer Award recipient (2014) Sarah Bird as she discusses her newest book.Sarah Bird, Last Dance on the Starlight Pier
