CAMDEN — On Tuesday, Sept. 13, at 6:30 p.m., the Camden Public Library, 55 Main St., hosts author James Hornor in the Picker Room for an in-person book event. Hornor will be discussing his novel “Victoria Falls,” which explores American male stereotypes, vulnerability and masculine authenticity. Hornor will be giving a brief slideshow, reading from the text, and fostering audience discussion.

The novel is set in the 1990s in Zimbabwe, Kenya, and Bombay, India. The story follows James Monroe, a late 20th century innocent abroad who embodies both the bravado and the debilitating insecurities of the modern American male. Monroe’s journey into authenticity results in a series of failed relationships that reveal the dark, enigmatic recesses of his complex personality and eventually land him in a prison in Bombay.

Books will be available for purchase at the event. More details about this and other library programs can be found at
