Ned Bachus, who received his MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts, will read from City of Brotherly Love and talk about fiction writing at RiverRun Bookstore, 142 Fleet Street, Portsmouth, NH 03801 on Tuesday, December 11 at 7 PM. Former English Professor Bachus, the founder of the first rugby club for the deaf in the U.S. and lead singer of Philadelphia-based “rhythm and roll” band Sacred CowBoys, has been praised by New Hampshire writer W.D. Wetherell for “writing with empathy, humor and insight” about a diverse array of human types, ranging from a rugby-playing pharmaceutical rep to an aging waitress with a crush, a bass-playing plumber, and an ASL interpreter and her deaf-blind boyfriend on a harrowing bicycle ride. Shop local in the cozy confines of Portsmouth’s great independent bookstore with this new resident of New England and don’t be surprised if a Christmas Carol breaks out.
One thought on “Ned Bachus Reading/Book Signing at Portsmouth’s RiverRun Bookstore”
There is something about Ned’s stories that make me want to curl up in front of a fire and reflect on the gifts and graciousness of life. His stories about the everyday life of ordinary people are actuallly stories that make you realise how extraordinary all our stories really are.
