Journalist, author, and teacher Stephen Kiernan will read from and sign his debut novel, The Curiosity, on Thursday, August 1st, at 7 p.m. at The Galaxy Bookshop. We are excited to celebrate this publication, which became a staff favorite even before its release (we were lucky to get an advance reading copy!) The novel is a page-turner that mixes scientific possibilities and romance while raising questions about the very nature of life, death, and humanity. Stephen has visited Hardwick in the past for discussions of his non-fiction work, Authentic Patriotism and Last Rights.
