Thank you to everyone who came out for our two fabulous events last week and this past weekend. On Thursday, we had a wonderful, laugh-out-loud time with Rainbow Readers special guest Angel Martinez. And then on Sunday, to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday, we had a fun morning of coloring and reading aloud from some of Seuss’s lesser-known books.
THIS WEEK we finally get to warmly welcome Michael Hartigan, Thriller Author of Stone Angels. A nasty snow-storm had pushed back this event, but this weekend is looking beautiful. In fact, we even have some of his books in the store now, so you can pre-purchase them for the event.
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.
