The Fault in Our Stars brilliantly explores the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love. Join us Thursday, June 11 at noon.
Bootstrapper: from broke to badass on a northern Michigan farm by Mardi Jo Link — When Link and her husband of 19 years call it quits, she is left with cash-flow problems and a looming divorce. She makes a seemingly impossible resolution: to hang on to her in northern Michigan farm and continue raising her three boys on well water and wood chopping. Armed with a sense of humor and three resolute accomplices, Link confronts blizzards and foxes, wrangles rampaging poultry, and withstands any blow to her pride to preserve the life she wants.

Convicted and sentenced to fifteen months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424, one of the millions of people who disappear "down the rabbit hole" of the American penal system.
