  • Reading and Author Talk with Kevin St. Jarre

    Kevin St. Jarre

    Journalist, essayist, educator, Pushcart-nominated author, and Cape Elizabeth resident Kevin St. Jarre will read from and discuss his most recent book, Paris, California. Kevin will speak about researching and writing his new book, the art and craft of creating a novel, and how he navigates switching between such disparate forms of the written word. Paris, California tells a tale familiar to many people who have watched their community transformed—by those who move in and then work to change the very characteristics that attracted them there in the first place—and what happens when that phenomenon goes completely off the rails. Kevin St. Jarre has worked in the corporate world, his teaching and consulting have taken him around the globe, and he’s a combat veteran. He has an MFA in Creative Writing from the Stonecoast MFA program. His first three novels were published by Berkley Books. His latest novels, The Book of Emmaus (2022), Absence of Grace (2022), The Twin (2021), Celestine (2021), and Aliens, Drywall, and a Unicycle (2020), have all been published by Encircle Publications. His essays and poetry have appeared in various publications, and his Pushcart-nominated short fiction has appeared in journals such as Story and Solstice Literary Magazine. He grew up in Madawaska, Maine and now lives on Maine’s coast.

    *** Classics Book Group will meet immediately after author talk (approx 3 PM) to discuss Paris, California.
