Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Putnam County Public Library will welcome author Chris White to the library on Thursday, April 19 at 7 p.m. to discuss her highly acclaimed novel, "The Life List of Adrian Mandrick," which hs been listed among "The Most Anticipated Fiction Books of 2018" by the Chicago Review of Books.

Author Chris White displays the new book she will discuss during an April 19 appearance at the Putnam County Public Library.

"The Life List of Adrian Mandrick" is an incisive debut novel about a pill-popping anesthesiologist and avid birder who sets out to find one of the world's rarest species, determined to stop at nothing -- until he's forced to confront his obsessions and what they've cost him.

Combining wry humor and mystery with environmental adventure, "The Life List of Adrian Mandrick" is White's first novel.

An award-winning playwright and screenwriter, White holds an MFA in dramatic writing from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Her plays have been produced nationally and internationally, and her play "Rhythms" won the Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding New Play.

White also received an Award of Merit at the Women's Independent Film Festival for her feature-length screenplay, "Weasel in the Icebox," and her short film, "Mud Lotus," was an official selection at the New Hampshire, Albany and Cincinnati film festivals.

White, who lives along Big Walnut Creek near Bainbridge, is a DePauw University professor of English, teaching creative writing.

The author will have copies of her book available for purchase and signing at the program at PCPL, 102 E. Poplar St., Greencastle.
