Bill Schubart 'Lila & Theron' Discussion & Book Signing

Wednesday, June 14th

6:00pm - 7:30pm

 

Join Bridgeside Books in welcoming Bill Schubart and his new novel, Lila & Theron.

Set in rural America and spanning much of the 20th century, Lila & Theron captures the spirit of the American rural experience, as it relates to their personal stories of love and sacrifice.

Award winning author and public radio commentator, Bill Schubart, first introduced us to Lila & Theron characters in his 2008 short story collection, The Lamoille Stories.   After being influenced by William Faulkner's acceptance speech on winning the Nobel Prize, he returns seven years later to finish their stories.

Lila and Theron plumbs the depth and triumphs of the human spirit in a way now lost in today's obsessions with consumerism and celebrity culture, immersing us in a receding world where neighbors and nature are the gifts and love is often comes with great hardship.
