Connecticut native Wally Lamb yesterday, May 30, at Book Expo America 2103, reading and speaking about his new novel, “We Are Water,” due out on November. Set in Connecticut, the book’s main character, similar to Lamb, works at a New England university. Lamb is a former UConn professor. He told the crowd at the BEA that the plot also involves two traumatic events that occurred in his own childhood. He also said: “Writers and readers are two poles. [Books and stories} are the electricity that connect us.” …. What a great way to describe the power of stories and storytelling. (Photo courtesy of BEA Digital Press Room)
