Fiction Imbued by Place: Rockville Stories

It's often said, “If these walls could talk.” Novelist Ellen Prentiss Campbell makes a habit of listening to the silent walls around us. She imagines lives our buildings may have witnessed and her fiction gives voice to the bricks and mortar. Campbell grew up in Rockville and later returned, living in the West End for more than thirty years with her husband, Peerless President Harold Pskowski. Rockville inspired several stories in her collection Contents Under Pressure, which was nominated for the National Book Award. Her historical novel The Bowl with Gold Seams features a renowned resort hotel. Join her for an exploration of some of her favorite fictional territory in Rockville.

Light refreshments will be served!

At the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre, 603 Edmonston Drive, Rockville, MD. Click here for info.
