Lauren Groff 

When: Tue., April 3, 6:30 p.m. 2012
Lauren Groff's new novel, Arcadia, tells the story of a boy named Bit born in the early days of a hippie commune in the late ’60s. While the utopian group smokes grass and chops wood and tries to define itself as separate from the violent world that it knows, Bit’s whole vision of the world is shaped by his surroundings. Groff deftly manipulates time to show how that coming-of-age shapes the rest of his life. Best of all are her sentences, which bring these scenes to scintillating life. Groff arrives at SCAD’s Ivy Hall on Tues., April 3, at 6:30 p.m. to discuss and read from her work. (Wyatt Williams)
