The Bookey Readings: Baron Wormser

BARON WORMSER | FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 7PM

Baron Wormser will be reading from his new novel, Tom o’ Vietnam, Friday December 1, at 7:00 PM, at the Harlow Gallery, 160 Water Street, in Hallowell. Please join us for the final program of the 2017 Bookey Readings at the Harlow, in what promises to be an unforgettable evening with one of the region’s finest writers. Refreshments are served. A $3 donation is appreciated at the door to benefit the Harlow Gallery.

Baron’s fifteenth book, Tom o’ Vietnam, traces the travels of a Vietnam vet in the fall of 1982. Tom o’ Vietnam is a very American road novel but also an evocation and investigation of Shakespeare’s King Lear. Like Tom o’ Bedlam, Tom is hiding out, “impersonating a person,” as he puts it. Tom journeys on one bus after another across a landscape that makes him wonder what he was fighting for. From Santa Fe to Washington, D.C., he meets fellow Americans who have their own stories to tell and who wonder about his. Along the way he spends time with his three sisters, all the while attempting to deal with the demons of the war and the ghosts of the Shakespearean tragedy he carries with him. Tom o’ Vietnam blends poetry, history, and dark wit, as it bears witness to the depths of eloquence and grief, anger and endurance.

The Harlow Gallery is owned and operated by the Kennebec Valley Art Association (KVAA) a 501(c)3 membership based non-profit founded in Augusta in 1958. The mission of the KVAA and the Harlow Gallery is to promote and celebrate art, artists and community. For more information about the Harlow Gallery or this event contact jayfranzel@yahoo.com
