Hosted ONLINE by Weller Book Works in Salt Lake City, Utah 

Meredith Hall discusses her novel Beneficence (new in paperback) with author Lily Brooks-Dalton.

The Wall Street Journal writes “As organically as it traveled to heartbreak, Beneficence progresses to the place of wisdom that lies beyond it, where we learn that a home is part of the ‘vast world of innocence and harm,’ not an island beyond it.”

Lily Brooks-Dalton is an American writer born and raised in southern Vermont.

Launch: The Isolation Artist by Bob Keyes

Tuesday, September 7 | 6:00 p.m. (ET)

IN-PERSON event outdoors at Congress Square Park (at the corner of Congress Street and High Street in Portland, Maine)

Join Longfellow Books for the launch of The Isolation Artist: Scandal, Deception, and the Last Days of Robert Indiana by Bob Keyes who will be joined in conversation by Monica Wood.

The Isolation Artist is a richly-reported tale of artistic genius undone by extravagance, greed, and age. Bob Keyes has delivered a singular book, revealing all the players and palace intrigue surrounding the life—and controversial death—of American icon Robert Indiana. I’ve been a fan of Keyes’ work for years, and this feels like a book he was born to write, cracking the hard exteriors of the New York City art world and a remote Maine island for the complicated truth within.”—Michael Paterniti, author of Love and Other Ways of Dying
