Author Talk


Meet the Author: Roxana Robinson

Dawson's Fall

September 17, 2020

Join The Pequot Library for a Digital Meet the Author event on Zoom. Amy Hufnagel, Director of Programs & Visitor Experience at the Stowe Center, will interview Roxana Robinson, author of Dawson’s Fall.


In Dawson’s Fall, a novel based on the lives of Roxana Robinson’s great-grandparents, we see America at its most fragile, fraught, and malleable. Set in 1889, in Charleston, South Carolina, Robinson’s tale weaves her family’s journal entries and letters with a novelist’s narrative grace, and spans the life of her tragic hero, Frank Dawson, as he attempts to navigate the country’s new political, social, and moral landscape.


Registration is required. Register here.


You will receive an email with Zoom meeting details on the day of the event.


“Taken as a whole, the…story reads as a reflection of America in the years after the Civil War, defined by reinvention, race, and the ideal of honor.”
– Washington Independent Review of Books
