Aurthor Talk with Debra Spark
Author Talk with Debra Spark
Saturday, April 6 at 10 a.m.
In-person at PML
No registration required. Free!
Debra Spark's new book Discipline is a propulsive literary mystery about family strife and devotion, ambition and authorship, and the abiding and mysterious power of art. Inspired by the life and family of Walt Kuhn (the painter responsible for the 1913 Armory Show that introduced Americans to modernism) and the scandal-ridden Elan boarding school that was forced to shut down in 2011, this richly drawn, suspenseful novel shows Spark at her most masterful.

Spark will talk about her experiences researching and writing this deeply engaging novel and read excerpts from the book. She is the author of several books and an editor of the food essay anthology Breaking Bread. She lives in North Yarmouth.
