Popular novelist Judith Merkle Riley will address the topic “Finding the Lost Woman: The Role of the Historical Novel” during a campus lecture on Wednesday, Oct. 29 in the University of La Verne’s La Fetra Auditorium
Hosted by the university’s Honors Program, Merkle’s lecture is scheduled to start at 11:30 a.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
Critically acclaimed as a delightful combination of provocative historical writer Antonia Fraser and colorful fiction author Anne Rice, Riley has enjoyed success with such books as “The Serpent Garden,” “The Oracle Glass” and “The Master of All Desires.” Her historical novels, chosen Book-of-the-Month Club selections, have been translated into eight languages.
La Fetra Auditorium is located on Third Street at the western edge of ULV’s main campus. Parking is available in the Mainiero Lot and along Third Street, east of B Street. For additional parking information and driving directions, go to the university’s Web site at www.ulv.edu.
