About the Author
Author Dave Wilkinson studied photography in the 1960s with the late Minor White. Starting in a camera shop in 1964, photography led Wilkinson to publication in Aperture magazine and several exhibitions. His professional career covers a wide range of journalism, including a year with the landmark Maine Times, campus photography, advertising and fine art. In 2007, with Producer Marilyn Taylor, Wilkinson created incredibleMAINE, a half-hour weekly TV show on the Maine Public Broadcasting Network. He has twice been Emmy nominated for Directing the award-winning show. His first novel "WITCHGRASS: A Pipe Dream" gained a wide readership and many positive reviews. Workshop is his fourth novel.

The author uses a clever device to present each character’s reaction to this experience. Through a series of letters written to friends and families we learn the innermost thoughts of the characters as they view their relations with each other and adapt to the experience.
One of the high moments of the book for me was when the author described a trip the group made to an abandoned manufacturing plant. The rich description of the sensations experienced by one character as she gradually was becoming aware of the many features of the setting, the light, the rusting machinery brought the reader right into that moment in time.
I thought the story ended somewhat abruptly and would have been interested in following what happened to the characters after the workshop experience. However, it seems that the author’s intent was to present a slice of life at a certain time in the 60’s and with that objective this tale satisfies in full measure.
