Author Talk: Robert Klose

September 10, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Life on MarsRobert Klose’s sixth book — and second novel — is his most pointed and daring.

Life on Mars (July 2019) takes a satirical look at evolution vs. Intelligent Design — a sort of feint by anti-evolutionists to get creationism into the classroom by assiduously avoiding the mention of God. Instead, reference is made to a “higher” or “superior” intelligence. But what if the Intelligent Design folks are right and the evolutionists are wrong?

Robert Klose is a regular contributor of essays to The Christian Science Monitor.  His other books include “Adopting Alyosha — A Single Man Finds a Son in Russia,” “Small Worlds — Adopted Sons, Pet Piranhas and Other Mortal Concerns,” “The Three-Legged Woman & Other Excursions in Teaching” and the novel, “Long Live Grover Cleveland,” which won a 2016 Ben Franklin Literary Award and a USA Book News Award.
