“War of the Encyclopaedists” is the joint debut novel by poet Christopher Robinson and veteran Gavin Kovite. As Amazon describes the novel: “In a superb, rare literary collaboration, two major new talents join their voices to tell the story of a generation at a crossroads, and a friendship that stretches over continents and crises — from the liberal arena of Boston academia to the military occupation of Iraq — in this ambitious and electrifying debut novel.”

Dr. Elizabeth Samet will speak to the authors about the novel and the discussion will be followed by a book signing. For more information, click here.
