    Reader Meet Writer: Carter Sickels

    A stunning novel about the bounds of family and redemption, THE PRETTIEST STAR shines light on an overlooked part of the AIDs epidemic when men returned to their rural communities to die, by Lambda Literary Emerging Writer Award-winning author Carter Sickels.

    THE PRETTIEST STAR is Carter Sickels' second novel. His debut novel, THE EVENING HOUR was a Lambda Literary Award finalist and was adapted into a feature film that premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. Carter is also the recipient of the 2013 Lambda Literary Emerging Writer Award.
