Maud Casey - The Man Who Walked Away and Melissa Pritchard - Palmerino

Sunday, March 9, 2014 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Join us for a pair of historical novels.  Pritchard, winner of the Flannery O’Connor and other awards, frames her narrative around a lonely, angry writer trying to make fiction out of the life of Violet Paget (1856-1935), who wrote, dressed, and lived as Vernon Lee. (Bellevue Literary Press)

Casey, winner of the Calvino Prize, bases her third work of fiction on Albert Dadas (1860-1907), a man who did indeed walk away—away, and all over Europe. Coming to after his sojourns, Dadas had no memory of where he’d been and sought help at a Bordeaux hospital. (Bloomsbury)
