WESTPORT, Conn. -- Former Westporter Robert Hill will discuss his new science fiction novel "The Remnants," set during the twilight days of the once-Utopian community of New Eden, on Tuesday, March 22, at 7 p.m. in the Westport Library’s McManus Room.

Peopled with hereditary oddities, New Eden has arrived at its last days. As two near-centenarian citizens prepare for their annual birthday tea, a third vows to interrupt the proceedings with a bold declaration. "The Remnants" reveals the lives of wood-splitters, garment-menders and chervil farmers, while exposing an undercurrent of secrets, taboos and unfulfilled longings.

“What a lyric and wild romp of language, life, love. Reading 'The Remnants' reminded me why I love to read, why I love to write,” said Gina Ochsner, author of "The Russian Dreambook of Color and Flight."

Hill has worked in advertising, entertainment, educational software, and not-for-profit fundraising. He is a recipient of an Oregon Literary Arts Walt Morey Fellowship and a Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference Fellowship. His first novel, "When All Is Said and Done," was shortlisted for the Oregon Book Awards’ Ken Kesey Award for Fiction.

Books will be available for purchase and signing at the program, which is free and open to the public. For further information, phone 203-291-4800, or check their website .
