Amy Hassinger - Reading & Book-Signing on Wednesday Night

After the DamAmy HassingerI just got my copy of After the Dam, Amy Hassinger's critically acclaimed new novel.  The starred review from one journal called it, "taut, beautifully written, and suspenseful," so I'm predicting a late night.  On Wednesday (October 5), Hassinger will be here at the library (7pm), reading excerpts and signing copies.  (Books will be available for purchase.)  Though she certainly has a national following, Hassinger is especially beloved in Central Illinois where she teaches writing, does her podcast (The Literary Life) and every now and then, writes amazing novels.  Many of our patrons have asked for more author events - and with good reason.  There's nothing like hearing a talented author read their own work, talk about the writing process and offer insights into their inspiration.  Hope to see you Wednesday night.  And one more thing - Amy says she's bringing cookies...  :-)
