Writers in Conversation

Ted Thompson
The Land of Steady Habits

Thursday, September 18, 2014 – 7:00 PM
The event will be held at Five Points Gallery, 33 Main Street, Torrington.

Connecticut-born author, Ted Thompson, will be discussing his acclaimed debut novel with Litchfield County Writers Project Director, Kathy Knapp. Thompson's novel explores the grand themes of love, loss and betrayal with uncommon originality, wit and wisdom as his main character embarks on an awkward, humorous and heartbreaking journey to reconcile his past with his precarious present. The Land of Steady Habits has been chosen by Amazon as "best book of the month" and Barnes & Noble hails it as a "great new writers pick".

The event is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a book signing and reception. Thompson's books will be sold at the event by the Hickory Stick Bookshop.

The Litchfield County Writers Project provides programs that celebrate the creative work of Litchfield County and support the academic aims of the University of Connecticut.
