BLUE HILL — Maine author Robert Klose will share from his new novel, “Life on Mars,” at the Blue Hill Public Library on Thursday, Sept. 26, at 7 p.m.
“Life on Mars” takes a satirical look at evolution vs. intelligent design, following a feint by anti-evolutionists to get creationism into the classroom through assiduously avoiding any mention of God.
Instead, reference is made to a “higher” or “superior” intelligence.
“But what,” the story asks, “if the intelligent design folks are right, except that the ‘higher intelligence’ is something neither side in the human origins debate is prepared to face?”
Klose teaches at the University of Maine at Augusta. He is a regular contributor of essays to The Christian Science Monitor.
Books will be available for sale and signing.
