Carroll County Chapter - “Words on a Page”

April 13, 2019
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Finksburg Branch Library
2265 Old Westminster Pike
Finksburg, MD 21048

Nicholas Guild will present “Words on a Page,” where he will discuss the psychological experience of reading and writing and how that impacts writing style or, put another way, what you can and cannot get away with as a writer.  As an academic, and previous creative writing instructor, Mr. Guild has discovered deep flaws in the ways that English teachers understand fiction. 

BIO: Nicholas Guild published his first novel in 1975 and has been writing ever since.  His thrillers and historical novels have been published from Japan to Russia and several have been international bestsellers.

Publishers Weekly described him as “a master of timing, plot and style.”  The Associated Press said, “Nicholas Guild writes extremely well.  His sentences are tight and well-constructed, and, additional bonus, his plot and sub-plots cannot be faulted.”  The Cincinnati Enquirer said, “Guild writes extremely well.  He does the flashbacks so well you are unaware the action has stopped and the novelist is filling you in on the character’s past.”  The New York Times Book Review said, “The almost languid grace of his writing also sets the measured pace of the storytelling, while wrapping the narrative in an atmosphere thick with sensuality.”
