BRATTLEBORO -- Join author and first-time novelist Jonathan Rintels at Brooks Memorial Library, 224 Main St., on Monday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m., in the meeting room, for a discussion of his book, "Lifemobile."

According Robert Bianco of USA Today, "In this lovely first novel from Jonathan Rintels, what begins, literally and figuratively, as a reclamation project for the much maligned Corvair grows into a sweet, moving celebration of the bond between fathers and sons -- the way their flaws can magnify each other and their virtues can save each other. Written with a deft touch, an engaging wit, and a sure eye for what will ring warm and true, this is an incredibly engaging story that anyone would treasure."

Rintels has authored numerous produced movies for television and an episode of "Law & Order." He is also the founder and executive director of the Center for Creative Voices in Media, a nonprofit advocacy group "dedicated to preserving in America’s media the original, independent and diverse creative voices that enrich our nation’s culture and safeguard its democracy." As an advocate, he has penned numerous speeches, white papers, research reports, regulatory filings, magazine articles, and op-eds on important public policy issues.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 802-254-5290 or www.brooks.lib.vt.us.
