rec_basketball 7:00 PM Talk and Book Signing with the ProJo's Bill Reynolds - Weaver Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Joyce May   401-434-2453   eplibraryjoyce@yahoo.com
   

We know you read his ProJo columns, and if you haven't heard him speak, now is the time! Reynolds will do a talk and book signing for his recently released book ~ Hope, A School, A Team, A Dream, a book that follows the 2012-2013 basketball season of Hope High School.  Books will be available for purchase from Books on the Square.

From a Starred Review in Booklist...

Reynolds' style is intimate and thought-provoking, and his conversations with players and coaches offer insight into their dreams and the outlook they have on basketball and life. He also presents a historical primer on the Rhode Island schools and the changing political landscape that has deeply affected Providence's neighborhoods. A basketball book but also a candid look at inner-city life that should garner it a broad audience.

Following the success of his first two suspense novels Carom Shot and Straight Pool, Partridge returned with Scratched, garnering a starred review in Publishers Weekly.  

Both readers and writers will enjoy J.J. Partridge as he shares his insights on writing thrillers, chillers, and noir. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
