Peng Shepard, the daughter of former Phoenix TV anchor Lin Sue Cooney, is out with her first novel, which is based on an actual natural phenomenon. It’s called Zero Shadow Day, where people’s own shadows are not visible to them because they are directly underneath them in certain parts of the world twice a year. “THE BOOK OF M” tells the story of a group of ordinary people who risk everything to save their loved ones as their shadows, and memories, disappear. Those whose shadows disappear also gain a strange new power. Shepard, a Phoenix native, will discuss her new novel.
