Tim Weed’s first novel, Will Poole’s Island (2014), which Kirkus Reviews called “immersive . . . a riveting portrayal of early Colonial New England,” was named one of Bank Street College of Education’s Best Books of the Year. Tim’s short fiction collection, A Field Guide to Murder and Fly Fishing, is forthcoming in 2017 from Green Writers Press. Tim’s stories and essays have won Writer’s Digest Popular Fiction and Solas Best Travel Writing awards and have appeared in Colorado Review, Gulf Coast, Saranac Review, Talking Points Memo, Writer’s Chronicle, and elsewhere. Tim teaches at Grub Street and in the MFA Writing program at Western Connecticut State University and works as a featured expert for National Geographic. At Bookstock, Tim will discuss the genesis of Will Poole’s Island, with a particular focus on his interest in bringing accuracy to our understanding of how English and Native cultures collided in 17th century America.
