Yardstick Hosts Reading, Signing with Milwaukee Author

Milwaukeean Zhanna Slor will be at Yardstick Books on May 13, 1-2 pm, to read from and sign her book Breakfall, and answer questions from the audience.

Slor was born in Ukraine and moved to the Midwest in the early 1990s. NPR called her debut novel, At the End of the World, Turn Left, “elegant and authentic,” and Booklist ranked it as one of the Top Ten Crime Debuts of 2021. 

Slor’s second novel, Breakfall, is a domestic thriller surrounding a mysterious death at a close-knit jujitsu gym. She fabricated the circumstances of the book’s murder, but her martial-arts training inspired the story.
