Please join us on Sunday, September 8, 2019 at 3pm, when local author Alan Lightman presents his new novel, Three Flames. There will be an opportunity for Q&A and book signing after the author presentation. This event is free and open to the public.
** A vivid story of revenge and forgiveness, of a culture smothering the dreams of freedom, and of tradition against courage, “Three Flames” grows directly from Lightman’s work as the founder of the Harpswell Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance a new generation of female leaders in Cambodia and all of Southeast Asia. **
Alan Lightman is the author of six novels, including the international bestseller “Einstein’s Dreams,” as well as “The Diagnosis’, a finalist for the National Book Award. He is also the author of a memoir, three collections of essays, and several books on science. His work has appeared in The Atlantic, Granta, Harper’s Magazine, The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, Salon, and Nature, among other publications. He has taught at Harvard and at MIT, where he was the first person to receive a dual faculty appointment in science and the humanities.
