Come hear a talk about the origins of her novel and a short reading by Janet Benton, whose debut novel, Lilli de Jong, was just released by Nan A. Talese/Doubleday. It's the diary of an unwed Quaker mother who aims to keep her baby in 1883 Philadelphia. Janet will be introduced by novelist Dori Ostermiller, with whom she attended graduate school at the University of Massachusetts MFA program. Q&A and book-signing to follow.
