Local nonfiction authors discuss, sign books Wednesday in Westerly
There's an intriguing mix of writers and subject matter Wednesday when Savoy Bookshop & Café and the Westerly Library present the latest in their ongoing Local Authors Series. Taking place in the library, this event features nonfiction titles:
"New England Neon" — Photographer/writer Susan Bregman explores a mostly-gone era when glowing neon signage punctuated the region's downtown streetscapes.
"Stroke Through a Mother's Eyes — The First Year" — Felicia Zera Kalapos captures the agony, disbelief and struggle involved when her healthy 32-year-old daughter suffered a major and life-threatening stroke — and how a fight for survival became a unifying and inspiring journey.
"Dying Well" — Susan Ducharme Hoben, inspired by the grace, wit and courage with which her terminally ill husband celebrated life and prepared his family for his passing, offers this poignant and uplifting story.
The authors will discuss the work and the path to publication — and will of course sign copies.
Local Author Nonfiction Spotlight, 6 p.m. Wednesday, Westerly Library, 44 Broad St., Westerly; free; (401) 213-3901.
