Author! Author! Tom Seigel & Michael Belanger in Conversation with Hollis Seamon
October 13 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Hear the inside story of writing a first novel straight from the source! Michael Belanger’s young adult novel The History of Jane Doe received a starred review from Kirkus, which called it “An impressive debut…suffused with a quirky humor and equal parts life-affirming and heartbreaking.” Tom Seigel’s The Astronaut’s Son tells the tale of the mysterious death of the first Israeli astronaut. This is a psychological thriller with heart and soul, which Publisher’s Weekly called “an intriguing variant on moon landing conspiracy theories…equally strong on characterization and plotting.” Both graduates of Fairfield University’s MFA in Creative Writing program, Tom and Mike will discuss their experiences with Hollis Seamon, author and Fairfield faculty member. Bring your questions about what it’s like to finally find yourself called an author! Books will be available for purchase and signing.
