Do You Have A Book in You? A Discussion with Bill Schubart

06:00 pm to 07:30 pm

Join Bridgeside Books in welcoming Vermont author Bill Schubart. Bill will join us at 6pm on April 18th to discuss his new novel The Priest. Bill will also engage the audience in a favorite topic, "Do I have a book in me?" As an author or eight fictional works--both self-published and traditionally published, he will answer questions about the work of writing and the new business of publishing.

About the Book:
The Priest follows a working class altar boy's decision to become a priest, and explores the struggle many boys have becoming men, especially around sexuality. Finding safety within the celibacy of his Catholic faith, he must then confront his own emerging sexuality in the real world and reconcile the inevitable collision between Catholic doctrine and the risk of being human - all of which takes him to a surprising place.
