On Sunday, April 10, at 4 p.m., author Alexi Zentner will read from and discuss his debut novel “Touch” at The Book Works in Flower Hill Promenade. The author will sign copies immediately following his talk. This event is free to the public.

Myths and the eternal bonds of love shape the landscape of “Touch” [W. W. Norton & Company; April 4, 2011; $24.95 hardcover]. On the eve of his mother’s death, Stephen, a pastor, returns to the harsh north woods of his childhood to comfort his dying mother and to revisit the ghosts of his family’s past. This elegant novel unfolds in overlapping narratives as Stephen recalls the summer 30 years ago when his grandfather finally returned, decades after he had disappeared, to search for his beloved and long-dead wife.
