Dave Patterson Book Release: Soon the Light Will be Perfect


Tuesday, April 23rd at 6:30pm

Gorham High School English teacher Dave Patterson reads from his debut novel! Set over the course of one propulsive summer, Soon the Light Will Be Perfect chronicles the journey of two brothers on the cusp of adulthood, a town battered by poverty and a family at a breaking point. In spare, fiercely honest prose, Dave Patterson captures what it feels like to be gloriously, violently alive at a moment of political, social and familial instability.
