ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y.—On Monday, September 22, author Lindsay Hill ’75, will read from his novel, Sea of Hooks, winner of the 2014 PEN Center USA Fiction Award, finalist for the Chautauqua Prize, and named one of the top 10 books of the year by Publisher’s Weekly and New York magazine. Kirkus Reviews calls Sea of Hooks “a remarkable and multifaceted novel—philosophical, poignant and puzzling,” while Publisher’s Weekly writes that “nearly every paragraph astonishes, every moment rich with magic and daring.” The community is invited to attend a pre-reading reception at the Anne Cox Chambers Alumni/ae Center, 4604 Route 9G, Annandale-on-Hudson. The reception will start at 6:00 p.m., with the reading to follow at 6:30 p.m. in the Seena and Arnold Davis ’44 Living Room. The reading, sponsored by the Bard Alumni/ae Association, is free and open to the public.
Lindsay Hill was born in San Francisco and graduated from Bard College in 1975. Since 1974, he has published six books of poetry and his work has appeared in a wide variety of literary journals. Sea of Hooks is his first novel, the product of nearly 20 years of work. His other writing and editorial projects include the production of a series of recordings of innovative writing under the Spoken Engine label, and coediting, with Paul Naylor, of the literary journal Facture. Since leaving a career in banking, he has worked in the nonprofit sector. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife, the painter Nita Hill.
