Close Encounters of the Literary Kind

Signing/Readings, Family/Child (Books), Talks/Lectures

Romance and history and mystery, oh my! Meet and chat with a panel of local authors over refreshments in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Where do they get their ideas and inspiration? How do they ply their craft? How did they come to be writers, and what are they working on now? Of course, there will be ample time to purchase signed copies of their works; a great way to stock up on your winter reading and take care of some of that holiday gift-giving. Presented by the South Fork Valley Community Association and the Deming Library. Featured Authors: • Barbara Davis-Pyles, doctor (not the usual kind) and author of children’s books. • Kathleen Kaska, maven of mystery, protector of critters. • Debu Majumdar, tales of India and tales for kids. • Jennifer Mueller, weaver of stories of romance and suspense. • Matthew Thuney (your co-host), humorist, essayist, purveyor of bucolic lore. With an introduction by Katrina Carabba, Deming Library Branch Manager. Admission is free, refreshments provided, all are welcome (as are donations to support the Friends of the Deming Library and to assist with the renovation and community outreach of the Van Zandt Community Hall).
