PASCO LECTURE with ELIZABETH BRUNDAGE @ Louis T. Graves Memorial Public

Jun 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Elizabeth Brundage graduated from Hampshire College, attended the NYU film
school, was a screenwriting fellow at the American Film Institute in Los
Angeles, and received an MFA as well as a James Michener Award from the
University of Iowa Writers' Workshop. She has taught at a variety of
colleges and universities, most recently at Skidmore College, where she was
visiting writer-in-residence. She lives near Albany in upstate New York.


Late one winter afternoon in upstate New York, George Clare comes home to
find his wife murdered and their three-year-old daughter alone-for how many
hours?-in her room down the hall. He had recently, begrudgingly, taken a
position at the private college nearby teaching art history, and moved his
family into this tight-knit, impoverished town. And he is the immediate
suspect-the question of his guilt echoing in a story shot through with
secrets both personal and professional. While his parents rescue him from
suspicion, a persistent cop is stymied at every turn in proving Clare a
heartless murderer. The pall of death is ongoing, and relentless; behind one
crime are others, and more than twenty years will pass before a hard kind of
justice is finally served. At once a classic "who-dun-it" that morphs into a
"why-and-how-dun-it," this is also a rich and complex portrait of a
psychopath and a marriage, and an astute study of the various taints that
can scar very different families, and even an entire community.

The Pasco Lecture Series is sponsored by the Stephen and Tabitha King
Foundation, Kennebunk Savings Bank, and the Graves Library Snack Team.  The
Library is located at 18 Maine Street, Kennebunkport, Maine.  Please call
the Library at (207) 967-2778 for information on this event or other
upcoming programs.  Light refreshments will be served.
