Jeremy Griffin, "Oceanography"
Jeremy Griffin, Oceanography
Saturday, November 16, 5pm
In his second story collection, Jeremy Griffin hovers like a loving but non-interventionist angel over the lives of characters at their most fragile, as they find within themselves unknown reservoirs of strength. These profound stories are marked by wisdom about hope and loss of hope, about attempts at healing on the paths of wounding.
