Local Author Book Discussion by the Fire
November 26, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Gather round the fireplace with local author James Dubbs- leading discussion about his novel, “Life in the Lion’s Mouth.”
Set in 1962, Life in the Lion’s Mouth is the story of seventeen-year-old loner Robert Campbell. Desperate to escape his hometown, Robert embraces his dead father’s long-ago advice to “live life in the lion’s mouth” and joins a small, dysfunctional traveling circus and finds a jittery solace as the star “prop” in the troupe’s long-defunct lion’s mouth act. But when Robert meets new-hire Anna, an aspiring folksinger who instantly re-names him “Bobby,” his new life is upended and he embarks on a seminal journey that tests his loyalty to the circus and leads him to the outskirts of the Greenwich Village folk scene and The Cafe Flame. There, among the Cafe’s eclectic cast of artists, sages, and fools, Robert confronts his buried past and truly discovers “life in the lion’s mouth.”
