1st Annual Grand Prairie Rabbit Festival

Looking for a good read? Here’s a review by Reference Librarian Linda Jordan

Consider reading “First Annual Grand Prairie Rabbit Festival,” by Ken Wheaton.  Available from ODL. 

This novel is a romp through rural Louisiana, with a young Catholic Priest, “Father Steve.”  Wheaton, through Father Steve, develops the characters into people the reader can like and believe in.

 Wheaton is a storyteller.  His characters are likeable and faced with real situations.  Miss Rita, daughter of a slave, raised Father Steve and she still has an influence on his life.  Vicki is the illegitimate daughter of the previous priest at St Pete’s.  Mark is an ex-priest, who is now openly gay.

 Their adventures are hilarious and their world is heartwarming.
