Author Night: Nicholas DiGiovanni - "Rip" - Thursday, March 22 @ 7pm
Wake Up, Citizens of Greater Lowell…Wake Up and Come on down to the Pollard Library Thursday, March 22nd at 7pm to meet local author Nicholas DiGiovanni as he reads from and discusses his novel “Rip: A Modern Retelling of Washington Irving’s Classic Tale.”
DiGiovanni has ole Rip VW waking up in the 1960’s imagine the culture shock! The book finds for our hero a job as a toll taker on New York’s Tappan Zee Bridge and that is only the beginning of the awkward hilarity offered up in the culture skewing novel. “Rip” is also good enough to include a copy of the original Washington Irving tale so readers can compare and contrast and savor the two great stories at once.
