The Literature Department of the Free Library...

The Literature Department of the Free Library of Philadelphia presents a night with local author Brad Windhauser who will discuss his latest novel The Intersection: When a white driver critically injures a black bicyclist, the residents in a tense, gentrifying South Philadelphia neighborhood can't decide whether to unite, hide, or explode. Ms. Rose wrestles with ways to effectively organize the community and still be true to the neighborhood she fears may have outgrown her. Carol Jones, the mother of the bicyclist, is drawn back to the neighborhood she fled years ago for posh suburbia and finds roots deeper than she realized. Michael, the driver and recent home owner in the neighborhood, must conquer his guilt over the accident while struggling with personal betrayal. By allowing strangers to help him, he discovers ties he didn#39;t know he deserved. Their intersecting lives test the neighbors--established and new--in ways they never expected. Below is a brief biography of Mr. Windhauser: Originally from Southern California, Mr. Windhauser now lives in Philadelphia. He has an MFA in Creative Writing from Queens University of Charlotte and is an Associate Professor (Teaching/Instruction) of writing at Temple University. He#39;s the author of two Philadelphia-set novels: Regret (2007) and The Intersection (2016) and his short stories have appeared in The Baltimore Review, Santa Fe Writer#39;s Project Journal, Ray#39;s Road Review, Northern Liberties Review, DOAB, and Jonathan. Mr. Windhauser#39;s reviews have appeared in Philaldelphia Review of Books. Parkway Central 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 Room 108 Literature Department For any questions, please feel free to call the Literature Department at 215-686-5402 or email us as at ereflitfreelibrary.org Program is free to the public yet please register on Eventbrite: https://windhausertheintersection621.eventbrite.com 06/21/18, 7:00 P.M. - Parkway Central Library
