Merlene Davis: Network of friends brings 'Saint Monkey' author to town

While Jacinda Townsend was studying at the Iowa Writer's Workshop at the University of Iowa, she met and interviewed award-winning Lexington author Crystal Wilkinson for a radio program. Over the years, they've met several times and have become part of a informal network of authors and friends who keep in touch. Now that Townsend has published her first novel, Saint Monkey, (W.W. Norton & Co., $24.95) that network of friendship is bringing her to Lexington on Friday and April 2.
