      "This past weekend, Chestertown hosted its third annual Book Festival.

      "John Barth, a postmodernist/metafiction author, kicked off the
      festival in the Hynson Lounge Friday evening with a reading from his
      new novel. Barth was introduced by former Washington College professor
      and Lit House founder Robert Day, who entertained the sizable audience
      with tales of his friendship with Barth and elaborated upon his
      friend’s many accomplishments. . .

      "At the Book Festival event, Barth read from his new book, “Every
      Third Thought: A Novel in Five Seasons,” which chronicles the life of
      protagonist George I. Newett after he takes a fall on his birthday.

      "Barth’s spirited reading of excerpts from the novel exhibited both
      wit and poignancy, peppered with relatable references to life on the
      Eastern shore.

      "The reading was followed by a reception and book signing, where
      literature lovers could talk with Barth and purchase his
      unreleased-to-the-public novel."

      The book is to be released October 11.
