Yesterday, Jeff Hobbs (Class of 1998) visited Tower Hill to talk about his first novel, The Tourists (pub. Simon and Schuster).
In the afternoon, Jeff met with students who are particularly interested in writing and shared with them his experience of the craft and challenge of writing fiction, as well as the inner workings of the publishing world. In the evening, a reception was held in the library and Jeff read from his novel and answered questions from an enthusiastic audience of over a hundred alumni, faculty and friends. He also signed copies of his novel at the conclusion of a splendid day for the entire school community. Visit the Multimedia Library for more pictures of the event.
