Come Discuss "Tinkers" by Paul Harding
The story behind Tinkers by Paul Harding is as inspirational as many novels.
A quiet, contemplative novel which imagines the last days of a man interspersed with scenes from the death of his epileptic father, it was rejected by many publishers before being picked up by a small press.
Community bookstores championed the work and Tinkers became the first independently published novel to win the Pulitzer Prize (2009) since A Confederacy of Dunces won in 1981.
The Hudson Park Library Book Club will discuss Tinkers on Saturday, January 14, at 10:30 a.m. Please join us.
