Thursday Lunch Bunch and Common Hour at F&M: Truth in Fiction, 2019 Bradley R. Dewey Award lecture

Nicholas Montemarano, Professor of English, Franklin & Marshall College

     Nicholas Montemarano, Professor of English at Franklin & Marshall College will read from his novels and discuss the process of transforming the actual—public figures and events—into what Tim O’Brien calls “story-truth.” Montemarano will share the triggers for his novels—a racially-motivated murder in Brooklyn, a political scandal, a barbaric act of terrorism—and explain why fiction, more than any other genre, allows him to imagine the private side of public events, turning “headlines” into more intimate stories.

 11:30 at Mayser Gym for Common Hour, 12:30 at Gypsy Kitchen for lunch. Join fellow Downtowners for one or both. 

When:
Thursday, November 07, 2019, 11:30 AM until 1:30 PM
Where:
F&M Mayser Gymnasium
College Avenue and Harrisburg Pike
Lancaster, PA
