SECOND SATURDAYS AUTHOR EVENT – LYNNE HEINZMANN
Saturday, December 10, 2016, 2pm
Our own Library Board Co-President Lynne Heinzmann will be launching her newly published novel, Frozen Voices, winner of the Fairfield University Book Prize for Literature.  This historical novel recounts  the wreck of the passenger ship, the Larchmont, off the coast of Block Island.  “It’s an ambitious piece of storytelling with multiple and intersecting points of view and characters that are clearly and indelibly drawn, including Harry Houdini.  I was reminded of E. L. Doctorow.” – Richard Hoffman, Book Prize Judge.  Lynne will give a brief presentation, read an excerpt and answer questions about the novel.  Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.  Pre-registration is recommended, but not required.
