Focus on Fiction at E-town

New Orleans novelist George Bishop will talk about strategies for creating and nurturing fiction writing Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 4 p.m. and read from his new novel at 8 p.m. at Bowers Writers House, Elizabethtown College.

“The Night of the Comet” is a coming-of-age story set in Louisiana in 1973. Alan receives a telescope from his science teacher/father so they can witness the approach of Comet Kohoutek. But the 14-year-old is more interested in studying the “heavenly body” of his neighbor and classmate.

The book earned praise from reviewers from Publishers Weekly to People magazine, which said it “does a heavenly job telescoping the heady promise of youth tinged with the sorrow of lost dreams.”
