Meet Author Tim Murphy @ Central

Join Brown University 1991 graduate and New York-based novelist and journalist Tim Murphy as he reads from, discusses and signs copies of his new novel, "Correspondents," a sweeping saga of two families—one Arab-American, one Iraqi in the years leading up to and following America's 2003 invasion of Iraq. Much of the novel takes place in the greater Boston area among its longstanding Lebanese community. Murphy is also the author of the 2016 novel "Christodora" and is a longtime NYC-based journalist focusing on HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ health and politics issues. Copies of the book will be for sale, courtesy of Barrington Books.
