LCW Book Event: The Encampment by Stephen Davenport
Please join us at 6pm on March 5th for a Left Coast Writers Zoom Event celebrating Stephen Davenport’s latest book, The Encampment, chosen by Kirkus Reviews as a Best Indie Book of 2020.
In this third installment of Davenport’s Miss Oliver’s series, which centers around the choices made by privileged girls at a prestigious boarding school, two young women who encounter a homeless man on the school grounds are confronted with the need to choose between doing the correct thing and the right thing, the latter being a decision with significant consequences.
“Davenport is an accomplished stylist with a keen ear for nuanced dialogue; he also has a knack for making serious political points with a light touch that makes them broadly accessible….A thoughtful and compelling account of the responsibilities that come with privilege.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
