From castles and white deer to fingers and fathers, J. Robert Lennon has created both haunting and humorous works. On Friday, April 24, the Faculty Speakers Fund and Writers Reading will sponsor Lennon for a reading at 7 p.m. in the Blackwell Room. He will read from his upcoming novel “Castle,” as well as his most recent anthology, “Pieces for the Left Hand.”
“Castle,” a novel to be released this year, tells the story of a man who buys a plot of land in upstate New York, only to discover that a castle has already been built in the middle of the wooded land. The psychological thriller leads to a journey into the past and a look at 21st century America.
Lennon has written five novels and several anthologies. “Pieces for the Left Hand,” is a critically acclaimed collection of 100 short stories about life’s experiences, and their ironic surprises and unexpected twists.
All are invited to hear Lennon share his stories.
