Event description

Description

David K. Leff's new novel in verse, The Breach: Voices Haunting a New England Mill Town, asks you to imagine that walls could actually talk as a New England factory community faces closure of its signature mill due to environmental contamination and foreign competition. It's a story of politics, family life, competing redevelopment schemes, gossiping locals, and a mother fiercely protecting her children as told in the voices of common objects-from the church steeple clock to a Bridgeport milling machine to an umbrella. They witness a bit of drinking, sex, a suicide, and the hopes and dreams of the human beings around them.

How did these everyday things find their voice? You may never again look at the ordinary objects around you the same. For more about the book go to: https://davidkleff.typepad.com/home/2018/11/explore-the-mysteries-of-the-breach.html
