BREAKING: John Irving Is Coming

by Philip Baruth

Who knows why, but all VDB’s favorite people are dropping into Burlington suddenly. The latest: John Irving will be reading from his novel-in-progress this coming Thursday night the 14th, at 7:30 pm, in the Fleming Museum Auditorium, on the UVM campus. Fair to say that it may be another 15 years before Irving is back this way, so if you loved Garp or Owen Meany or Cider House Rules or Hotel New Hampshire, come on over with a friend and catch this reading. Not shy, John Irving, so it will no doubt produce stories you’ll still be telling friends in 2036. And it’s free.
