Join us for a free reception and reading with Robin Yocum!October 4, 2012
One of Columbus’s favorites, Robin Yocum, former reporter with the Columbus Dispatch who won 30 local, state and national journalism awards, has turned his talent to writing page-turning fiction. Last year his first novel, Favorite Sons, was named the 2011 USA Today Book News Book of the Year for mystery and suspense. His new novel, The Essay, will be released October 2012. As Donald Ray Pollock, author of the critically acclaimed Knockemstiff and The Devil All the Time, said: “After reading The Essay, a tough but compassionate story about a poor teenager in southern Ohio who struggles to make good, I am convinced that Robin Yocum is one of the most talented and graceful writers working in America today.”
Thurber House is pleased to shine the spotlight on this local author with a wine and
hors d’oeuvres reception followed by Robin reading from his new novel, chatting about his work, and answering questions. Both his novels will be for sale at the event.
