Signing: The River Lock by Stephen Haven

Author Stephen Haven will be joining us here at the Book House on Tuesday, October 21 at 7pm to sign copies of his memoir The River Lock: One Boy's Life Along the Mohawk.

A few lines from the inside jacket flap:
"After a fourteen-year absence from his home in Amsterdam, New York, Haven returns in the week before Easter, 2003, to the town that molded his character....Through memories of adolescence, Haven reveals how a growing understanding of art, culture, friendship, spirituality, family, and class melded to create a man able to live fully in two distinct worlds."

The River Lock was published in hardcover earlier this year by Syracuse University Press.

Haven has also written several books of poetry. He is currently the director of both Ashland University's MFA in creative writing program and the Ashland Poetry Press.
