Ervin will reflect on the themes that prompted his most recent book—Christian’s Hope—as well as the impulses that impelled the writing of the entire Return to Northkill series. Third-culture folks who have felt marginalized in their communities of origin will find some comfort here, since Christian’s Hope shows a creative way to negotiate cultural differences. Most importantly, this third and last novel in the series gathers up the unfinished narratives from the first two volumes and brings them into a satisfying denouement.
The program is open to the public. No registration needed. Mr. Stutzman will sign copies of his book.
