4. Literary Event: Josh Weil speaks on “The Renegade Form: The Case for the Novella in Contemporary Fiction”
Josh Weil is an award-winning young author whose debut collection of novellas, The New Valley, is an “Editor’s Choice” of the New York Times Book Review. Set in the hill country between West Virginia and Virginia and written in strong, masterful language laced with tenderness, the novellas examine the strength and fragility of familial bonds and the yearning for human connection that runs through the lives of three different men in rural America. Thursday, September 24, 7:00pm. Free and open to the public.
