Please join us for a fiction reading and book signing with Cedar Crest College Writing Faculty, Alison Wellford. She will be reading from her novel, Indolence, in the 1867 Room of TCC on April 6th, 2016 from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
"It's rare to read a debut as extraordinary as Indolence by Alison Wellford; it's one of the sleekest, bravest, and most explosive first novels I've read in years. Indolence's tremendous achievements lie in the gorgeously wrought prose and a moral ambiguity so perfectly deployed that, even months after having read the book, I feel haunted by Wellford's strange and lovely work."
--Lauren Groff, author of Fates and Furies; Arcadia; The Monsters of Templeton; Delicate Edible Birds
"An accomplished debut ...The novel's appropriately languid tone and expressive descriptions, particularly of the natural world, offers an impressionistic portrait not only of Maria's surroundings but also of her state of mind. Maria's voice not only carries readers through these pages, but will stick with them afterward." --Publishers Weekly
