Author Chris Bohjalian reads at the VIC - 2012-04-18
Paul Smiths, NY-- The Adirondack Center for Writing and Paul Smith's College are thrilled to announce New York Times bestselling author of The Double Bind, Skeletons at the Feast, and Midwives author CHRIS BOHJALIAN will join us this Thursday, April 26th at the Paul Smith's College VIC.
Chris will be reading from his latest novel, a riveting and dramatic ghost story,
THE NIGHT STRANGERS. THE NIGHT STRANGERS is a page-turning ghost story with all the hallmarks readers have come to expect from Bohjalian: a palpable sense of place, meticulous research, an unerring sense of the demons that drive us, and characters we care about deeply. The difference this time? Some of those characters are dead.
Join us before the reading for drinks and apps with the author. Drinks will be non-alcoholic specialty drinks. Spend the evening with other book lovers from around the region and meet the charming Chris Bohjalian. Cost of the pre-reading event is $25 and benefits the Adirondack Center for Writing. Contact ACW to reserve your space at email@example.com or 518-327-6278.
The reading itself starts at 7:30pm and is free to Paul Smith’s College faculty and students and anyone attending the pre-event, $5 general admission. Books will be for sale, provided by Bookstore Plus of Lake Placid, and Mr Bohjalian will sign them before and after the reading.
