Fiction Reading: On Friday, February 13, at 4:15 p.m. in Griffin 3, author Lewis Robinson will read from his new novel, Water Dogs (Random House, 2009). Robinson is also the author of the book, Officer Friendly and Other Stories (Random House, 2004), which won the PEN Oakland-Josephine Miles Award. Water Dogs brings its setting alive as it explores the complexities of family and class in a small town in coastal Maine. Calling Robinson Water Dogs “a smart, suspenseful, absorbing first novel” by “a terrific writer,” novelist Curtis Sittenfeld (Prep, American Wife), observes that Robinson “evokes the moods and landscapes of Maine as deftly as he examines the conflicts and alliances within a family.” More information on the books is available at: http://www.lewisrobinson.com. This event is free and open to all members of the campus community and the general public. A book signing and reception with the author will follow the reading.
