Brad Kessler
North: A Reading and Discussion of the Novel

Kessler’s new novel, a finalist for the Vermont Book Prize, is a powerfully moving story about the intertwined lives of a Vermont monk, a Somali refugee, and an Afghan war veteran whose lives converge on a snowy Vermont night. The novel is woven together, according to Shelf Awareness “with intricate threads of home, flight, sanctuary, danger, hope, faith, storytelling and much more.” “Taut with suspense and eloquent insights,” wrote Foreword’s starred reviews “North is a novel of extraordinary scope.”  Kessler will discuss the making of the novel and his ongoing work with new Americans in Vermont.
