Karen Osborn on her novel Centerville

Centerville is the fourth novel by Karen Osborn, visiting assistant professor in English at MHC.

With one devastating explosion, a town is changed forever. Set against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement and the escalating Vietnam War, "Centerville" forms an engrossing meditation on the complex questions that arise in the wake of senseless violence.

Osborn has previously authored the novels "Patchwork" (1991), "Between Earth and Sky" (1996) and "The River Road" (2003).
