WESTPORT, Conn. – Westport resident and author Michael Spring will discuss his novel “Sacred Bones: Confessions of a Medieval Grave Robber” with Publisher’s Weekly contributing editor Sybil Steinberg on Monday, Aug. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Westport Library’s McManus Room.
Books will be available for purchase and signing at the program, which is free and open to the public.
Based on the true story of Deusdona, a ninth-century Roman deacon who worked in the catacombs, digging up worthless bones and selling them as the holy remains of saints and martyrs, the book is both a medieval “whodunit” and a portrait of an age.
Spring has degrees in English literature from Haverford College and Columbia University. He worked for more than two decades as editorial director of Fodor’s Travel Guides and publisher and vice-president of Frommer's Travel. He and his wife, Janis, have written three books together: “After the Affair,” “How Can I Forgive You?” and “Life with Pop: Lessons on Caring for an Aging Parent.”
