Lowell Library Author Show

We had a rainy but fun Local Author Night at the Pollard Memorial Library in Lowell, MA, signing books and chatting with those that braved the Spring weather.

The show was put together by Sean Thibodeau, the Coordinator of Community Planning.

The library not only provided us with a space to sell, and a ton of publicity, they also put out tasty snacks- always a plus!
Thanks to Sean and everyone who made this happen. Good to know they support local authors!

Readers, if you see a new author, check out their work, especially these debut novelists.
You can always take a peek at the writing before you buy to see if it's the kind of thing you like.

Here's Ursula Wong, author of two good novels, Purple Trees and Amber Wolf

And Dave Agans, author and raconteur. You may wonder why he's wearing a tinfoil hat! It's part of the marketing for The Urban Legion, his fun debut comic novel, which talks about all those conspiracy theories in a satirical way.

Here's Laura Fedolfi, an author who runs the Society of Independent Publishers and Authors, another organization that helps local writers.

Sara Marks, who just released her debut novel Modern Persuasion, a modernized Jane Austen tale.

Stephen O'Connor, whose book of short stories Smokestack Lightning, is a great collection of tales about Lowell.

Michael Hartigan, who has a debut mystery, Stone Angels

Jean Troustine, who's also a professor and prison activist! Bet she has some stories to tell! 

Jack Dacey, with a debut book with a popular name: The Long Way Home.
I asked him how many people start singing when he tells them the title.

Jim Peters, who I didn't get a chance to talk to, as he came in late

And now the Richard-ites. (Good band name!)

And last but not least, Rick Conti
