Brian Blanchette

After graduating from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy with a B.S., Brian Blanchette moved to Lebanon, NH and worked as a pharmacist in the Upper Valley. He loves reading, and after meeting and listening to John Updike read his Olinger Stories thirty-eight years ago, Updike's short fiction became Brian's favorite reading material. Brian belongs to the John Updike Society. He is researching the effects certain authors had on Updike's short stories and hopes to produce a critical paper or short book.
