Blue Hill Library: Author Event, Alice Lichtenstein

Blue Hill -

BLUE HILL – Local author Alice Lichtenstein will read from her new book, Lost, at the Blue Hill Public Library at 7pm on Thursday July 15th.  The book is about a woman who receives help from the police and a social worker in a search for her husband, Christopher, who suffers from dementia and who has wondered off in the cold of winter, unable to care for himself or find his way home. According to Publishers Weekly, “During the long wait for leads on Christopher, the trio meditate on their histories of love and betrayal, death and violence, while the temperature drops and hope fades…”

The novel has received rave reviews from The Boston Globe, the St.-Louis Dispatch and The Buffalo News. Alice Lichtenstein also wrote The Genius of the World (Zoland Books, 2000), and has published short stories in several literary journals. Her story, Dead Friends, appeared in the winter 2010 issue of Post Road. White Ladies will appear in the journal Short Story this summer.

Lichtenstein graduated from Brown University and was named the Boston University Fellow in Creative Writing. She has received a New York Foundation of the Arts Grant in Fiction and has twice been a fellow at the MacDowell Colony. She has taught at Boston University, Wheaton College, Lesley College, and the Harvard University Summer School, and now teaches creative writing at Hartwick College. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Oneonta, New York and in Surry, Maine.

Books will be available at the event for sale and signing. For more information, call the library at 374-5515.
