Chopped: A Novel – Book Talk with Author Dale Pollock  

  • Dec. 5 at 6 p.m.

Join in to welcome Dale Pollock to discuss “Chopped: A Novel,” which was released earlier this year.

He had a 22-year career in Los Angeles as an award-winning newspaper reporter and feature film producer, with 13 movies to his credit, and helped to bring the RiverRun International Film Festival to prominence. In addition, Pollock is a regular reviewer of new film releases on local radio and television news and the author of the biography, “Skywalking: The Life and Films of George Lucas” (1983). Chopped is described as a novel of money, passion and murder set in 1850s Boston and, according to Dr. Joseph Mills, author, poet, and UNCSA professor of the humanities, “this is the best type of historical novel — smart, immersive and well told.”
