Scott Elliott, associate professor of English, will read from his new novel, Temple Grove, at a book-signing event set for Tuesday, April 23 at 7 p.m. in Olin 130. From Prof. Elliott’s website comes this description of the novel: “Deep in the heart of Washington State's Olympic Peninsula lies Temple Grove, one of the last stands of ancient Douglas firs not under federal protection from logging. Bill Newton, a gyppo logger desperate for work and a place to hide, has come to Temple Grove for the money to be had in the timber. There to stop him is Paul, a young Makah environmentalist who will break the law to save the trees.” Read more here.
