The following is a list of upcoming author talks at the Albert Wisner Public Library:
On Saturday, Oct. 16, at 2 p.m., join Debra Scacciaferro for co-writing a Thriller from Opposite Sides of the World. How do two novelists who live on two different continents write a psychological thriller together?
The process was a unique one that produced the novel, “State of Innocence,” which was published in August 2021. Join Scacciaferro as she talks about her unique experience.
OrangeREADS: Bill Bryson
Orange Library Association presents : a VIRTUAL book discussion and author event with bestselling author Bill Bryson to be held on Sunday, Oct. 17, at 1 p.m. Bryson, in his book, “The Body: A Guide for Occupants,” takes us on an extraordinary journey through the human body.
This is a virtual program on Zoom. All registrants will receive, via email, the link to the discussion in advance of the event. Registration is through the Tuxedo Park Library portal at www.tuxedoparklibrary.org.
On Sunday, Nov. 14 at 2 p.m., join local author Danielle Henderson as she discusses her memoir, “The Ugly Cry,” in which she writes about experiencing abuse from family members, being abandoned by her mother and growing up with her foulmouthed, horror movie-loving grandmother.
Individually these topics seem unfathomably heavy — but Henderson leavens them with humor to create a wholly original testament to survival.
Books for all three talks are available for checkout at the library. Register online at www.albertwisnerlibrary.org or call the Help Desk at 845-986-1047, ext. 3.
