And we’ve got another great event coming to you THIS WEEKEND, too. THIS SUNDAY, February 12, from 3:00 – 5:00 PM, Michael Hartigan shares his thriller Stone Angels. Michael Hartigan is a Massachusetts native whose journalistic work and travel writing has been featured in numerous national and regional publications, including USA Today, The Arizona Republic, Destinations Travel Magazine and the MetroWest Daily News. Hartigan studied English and Psychology at Providence College in Providence, Rhode Island, where much of the Stone Angels story takes place. Stone Angels, his debut novel, is a gritty, fast-paced  “road-trip redemption” story following college senior Augustine Shaw, as he embarks on a road trip from Providence, Rhode Island to Key West, Florida.
