Coffee & Crime: Steve Hallock
September 17, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
We’re happy to welcome Steve Hallock back to the bookshop on Saturday, September 17th for Coffee & Crime! Steve visited last year to discuss his true crime novel JUSTICE DELAYED: The Catherine Janet Walsh Story. This year, we’ll be celebrating the release of THE SILENT TREATMENT, an “existential mystery.”
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When Grant Baker, an accomplished and respected newspaper photographer, suddenly stops talking one day, his wife embarks upon a journey to find out why. Pauline’s quest prompts theories from authorities that include a theologian and a doctor, ranging from simple anger to God’s will to an inexplicable physiological condition, in an exploration of themes that takes in faith, perception, guilt, identity, artistic endeavor, communication, universal light, and love. Along the way, the road hits some detours that, rather than answering the central question, raise even more. Why does a small-town cop arrest Grant? How does he land in a hospital in the aftermath of a violent storm? Why does an attractive newspaper art critic dump a glass of wine on his head in a local bar? How does an Edvard Munch painting find its way into an art gallery exhibit of photographs? What tale would Grant tell, if only he would – or could?
