Event Navigation

Finding Hollis…the sway of the trolley, the unusual passenger, the truck’s raspy muffler, the woman’s torn dress and her own inability to help. Frances is determined to let the details of the disturbing incident go. She’s certain that by Monday her life will return to normal and the wrung-out feeling inside will be gone. Yet she soon finds that neither the sound of her typewriter nor the lunchroom chatter will erase the dying woman’s final request: “Find Hollis.”

“[Pauline] knows how to both break and heal hearts in her debut novel, ‘Finding Hollis’…masterfully portrayed”

-Minneapolis Star Tribune



Pauline Knaeble Williams grew up in North Minneapolis, the eleventh child of twelve, where her family owned a funeral home for three generations. Finding Hollis is her first novel. She currently lives in Voorhees, New Jersey with her husband and two children.
