Meet Our Local Authors

Thursday, April 12 at 7:00pm

In celebration of National Library Week, we are pleased to present a panel of four local authors who will talk about their books and share with us the ideas for their publications, the joy (or agony) of putting the words together and the inspiration for the topic. If you’re a fledging writer, you may get some helpful publishing tips. If you just enjoy hearing about books, the writing experience or the way a book finally gets to our library shelf, you’ll enjoy spending an evening with these creative authors.

Anne Faigen has published several young people’s novel and her latest novel, Out of Turns, is a mystery-lover’s delight. A former high school and college instructor, her mystery has twists and turns that keep you guessing.

Debbie Frye’s book, written with her sister, is a true story of their discovery of their father’s life of crime. Our Father, Who Aren’t In Heaven, is a fascinating tale of the effects of the secrecy and shame the family endured and what made them decide to tell his story.

Dr. William Kraft is a professor emeritus of psychology at Carlow College, has published 12 books and has 3 more on the way. In his books, The Normal Alcoholic and When You Love an Alcoholic, his focus is on the integration of the psychological and spiritual aspects of addiction, an unusual and innovative approach.

Debbie Furey has written The Rapture, in which she explores the hidden prophecies in the Bible about the second coming of Jesus. There are many interpretations of the subject and Debbie presents in her book the results of her many years of study.
