RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The author of "Brewster" will discuss his work Monday night at the Ridgefield Library.
The "Author Talk" with Mark Slouka will be from 7 to 8 p.m. in the library Program Room. Slouka is a resident of nearby Brewster, N.Y., where the book is set.
“This beautifully written coming-of-age story sings with wisdom and heart. Slouka’s characters struggle to survive against a backdrop of remembered pain, routine violence,and the threat of being drafted to Vietnam, fighting to retain a friendship that may just be able to save them,” wrote Bonnie Jo Campbell, author of "Once Upon a River," about the novel.
Slouka is also the author of "Lost Lake," a New York Times Notable Book. His short stories have appeared multiple times in the yearly anthology Best American Short Stories. He is a contributing editor at Harper’s.
This event is part of the library's adult summer reading program and is made possible thanks to the Friends of the Library.
Space is limited for this event. Contact Lesley Lambton at 203-438-2282 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
