One Book, One Community featured at Writers' Forum

Laurinburg, N.C. – Local author Ted Wojtasik's first novel No Strange Fire, will be the featured subject matter at the Writers' Forum as part of the One Book, One Community program at St. Andrews.

Free and open to the public, this special forum begins at 7 p.m. in the Morris Morgan Theatre in the Morgan Liberal Arts Building on the St. Andrews Presbyterian College campus.

The novel focuses on the Nebraska Amish and a series of barn fires that result in the death of a young member of the community. Loosely based on historical events in 1992, Wojtasik lived among the Amish for several months to accurately portray the lives of the characters in the book.

A Connecticut native, Wojtasik is a visiting instructor in English and creative writing at St. Andrews. He holds an M.F.A. in fiction writing from Columbia University and a Ph.D. in 20th century American literature from the University of South Carolina. In addition to No Strange Fire, he has published two novels - Collage and Wild Animal Nation. His short stories have been included in numerous publications, including Cairn 45:The St. Andrews Review.
