Steve Manchester returns to the Dighton Public Library to present his latest award winning novel, Ashes on Thursday, September 28 at 7:00. Steve also discusses his writing and publishing process in his author talks, a perfect opportunity for aspiring writers to get tips and inspiration.
From the book jacket: “Middle-aged brothers Jason and Tom Prendergast thought they were completely done with each other…But life – and death – has a robust sense of irony, and when they learn that their cruel father has died and made his final request that they travel together across the country to spread his ashes, they have no choice but to spend a long, long car trip in each other’s company…The trip will be as gut-wrenching each expects it to be and is revealing in ways neither of them is prepared for.”
Steve has collaborated with local artist Brian Fox for Ashes. The artist and his work both appear in the novel.
All are welcome to meet with Steve. Copies of Ashes will be available to purchase. This is the first author event in the Dighton Library’s Fall Author Series.
