Eric G. Müller and<br/>Matthew Zanoni Müller<br/><em>Drops on the Water: Stories about Growing Up from a Father and Son</em><br/>Saturday, April 26, 5 pm<br/>

Join us for a conversation with Eric G. Müller, Matthew Zanoni Müller and Thomas Chulak from the bookstore. A Q&A  follows a brief presentation of their book.

Recounting experiences of a father and son in brief chapters that move between Germany and America, the East and West coast, and the African continent, the anxieties of early love and rural small town life are balanced against changes seen in a family across generations.
