Providence College professor Robert Hackey will discuss the 2015 Read Across Rhode Island book, Norwegian by Night.  Hackey is the director of PC's Health Policy & Management program and will discuss the themes of the award-winning novel that relate to healthcare and veterans affairs.

Praise for Boston-native Derek Miller's Norwegian by Night:

"has the brains of a literary novel and the body of a thriller" - The New York Times, 5/29/13

"superb characterisation...thoroughly gripping...crime fiction of the highest order" - The Guardian, 3/22/13

"richly written...Scandicrime by an American" -The Financial Times, 11/29/13

The program is free and open to all.
