A Great Reckoning is much more than a well-written mystery. The story also raises the focus on the importance of how we relate to one another in today’s world, especially with regards to those charged with the responsibility of enforcing the law.

This Spring’s Symposium will be held on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the Agawam Public Library. A limited amount of books are available at the library during regular business hours. We hope to see you there!
