Literary Lunch: David Ebenbach and Lewis Robinson

Tuesday, November 07 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: Main Library
Audience: Adults

 
Join us for a conversation between David Ebenbach and Lewis Robinson about Miss Portland, Ebenbach’s new book.  The program will be held at noon in the Rines Auditorium.

About the book
After years of medicated struggle, 34-year-old Zoe quits her office job and moves into a trailer with her boyfriend in rural Maine against her family’s wishes and her doctor’s advice. After all, she has big plans with Gordy, a goateed vegetarian with thoughtful eyes and a job at a yoga studio and, as it turns out, an unfortunate desire to always be in control. But when a late-night argument turns violent, Zoe runs away in search of a mystical beach house she recalls from childhood, only to discover that in order to find it, she must reckon with her past. In electric prose that burns with wit and intelligence, David’s first novel, Miss Portland, explores what it means to give up everything in order to recover who you are.
