Best-selling author Peter Heller is coming to read from and discuss his new novel, The Painter! After the breakaway success of The Dog Stars Peter has returned with a novel that is every bit as adventurous, searching, beautifully written and funny as his debut. We recommend it heartily, and we recommend coming to meet Peter, who is as entertaining in person as he is on the page.

This is the surprising and uplifting biography of an eighty-nine-year-old man who lives on the sidewalks of New York City – dubbed by the tabloids as the oldest homeless man in New York. It’s a journalistic investigation into the remarkable realities of what it takes to be an old survivor on the streets of America today told through arresting photographs and free verse.
Author Joe Lamport will join us to discuss the man as well as the book, voted one of the best books of 2013 by Kirkus Reviews.
