It apears Stephen King will be shaking things up a bit in an upcoming interview. Instead of having the questions shot at him, he'll be asking the questions. I doubt he'll ask, "Where do you get your ideas?" King is set to interview author Lauren Grodstein at Water Street Bookstore, located at 125 Water Street in Exeter Saturday, March 3, at 7 p.m. at the Cooperative Middle School auditorium in Stratham.

The website gives this summery fo Grodstein:
Grodstein is the author of A Friend of the Family, a riveting story of suburban tragedy, in which Lauren Grodstein charts a father's fall from grace as he struggles to save his family, his reputation, and himself. Pete Dizinoff, a skilled and successful New Jersey internist, has a loving and devoted wife, a network of close friends, an impressive house, and, most of all, a son, Alec, now nineteen, on whom he has pinned all his hopes. But Pete hadn't expected his best friend's troubled daughter to set her sights on his boy. When Alec falls under her spell, Pete sets out to derail the romance, never foreseeing the devastating consequences.
Lauren Grodstein's books include the novels A Friend of the Family and Reproduction is the Flaw of Love and the story collection The Best of Animals. Her pseudonymous Girls Dinner Club was a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age. Her work has been translated into German, Italian, French, Turkish, and other languages, and her essays and stories have been widely anthologized. Lauren teaches creative writing at Rutgers-Camden, where she helps administer the college's MFA program. She lives with her husband and son in New Jersey.The website also notes that the event is free. That's my favorite 4-letter word. Seats are first come first serve.
