"Laurie Garvey hadn't been raised to believe in the Rapture. She hadn't been raised to believe in much of anything, except the foolishness of belief itself. (...) And then it happened. The biblical prophesy came true, or at least partly true. People disappeared, millions of them at the same time, all over the world."
This excerpt is from Tom Perrotta's 2011 novel The Leftovers. Interested to hear more by Mr. Perrotta? He will be on campus tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Wilkie Center. He will read from his novels and talk about writing.
