Author Speak with Terence Hawkins

Friday, February 21, 2020

Terence Hawkins was raised in Fayette County, PA, a former coal hub later distinguished as the setting for the original Night of the Living Dead and American Rust. He graduated from Yale, where he was Publisher of the Yale Daily News, and received a law degree from the University of Wisconsin. In 2012 he became the founding Director of the Yale Writers' Conference, which he developed and managed through 2015. He is now the Director of the Company of Writers and Prose Editor of Blue Mountain Review. His first novel, The Rage of Achilles, is a realistic and sometimes brutal account of the Iliad based on the theory of the bicameral mind. Tom Perrotta called it a 'genuinely fresh take on a classic text.' In naming it a Year's Best, Kirkus Reviews called his second, American Neolithic, 'a towering work of speculative fiction.' Light lunch will be provided by Library. For additional information, please contact Cynde Bloom Lahey 203-899-2780 x 15133 or email clahey@norwalkpl.org
