Author's Forum
Event Type
Panel Discussion

Author Douglas Trevor, director of U-M's Helen Zell Writers' Program, reads from his new novel The Book of Wonders followed by a conversation with Peter Ho Davies, professor in the Helen Zell program; then Q&A and book signing.

About the book: A lonely female accountant falls for a man who seems to have stepped out of a Greek myth; a scholar uncovers a lost Shakespearean couplet and decides to quit academia; a celebrated author experiments with downloading a story from her brain and uploading it to another. In these and other stories, Douglas Trevor explores situations--both unsettling and comic--in which people lose their bearings, reinvent themselves, and resolve, sometimes haplessly, to make sense of their lives. 

The Author's Forum is a collaboration between the U-M Institute for the Humanities, the University of Michigan Library, & the Ann Arbor Book Festival.
