CT Author Trail: Rose Young
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Stop by the Community Room for the PLNL stop in the Connecticut Author Trail! Local author Rose Young will be discussing her book Love of Art and Murder. All attendees will be entered into a raffle for a small gift basket. 

 

Book description: 

Rose’s most recent novel, Love of Art & Murder – From Mystic to the City of Steeples begins with the death of artist Marilyn Maroney. The investigation leads us through the labyrinth of the art world and is inspired by a notorious true art crime.

The reader is lured into a multifaceted view of art– the personal world of artists, the private world of art collectors, and the public’s view of art in museums and galleries. Rose’s novel ventures into the intoxicating realm of art obsession with astounding profits, especially after death.

In her mystery series, Rose enjoys celebrating the highlights of New London, CT through her character’s entanglements from art and wine happenings in the city, to historic sites and waterfront vistas of Long Island Sound.

Rose’s soft mission - is to entice the reader to explore these locales and regions of New England - with book in-hand.

This book is a sequel to Roses, Wine & Murder--In the City of Steeples

Dave Wolffe Author Talk
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Join local author Dave Wolffe for a talk on his short story "After Here" and a discussion on different perspectives on the afterlife. "After Here" is a short story about life and death, as well as a relationship that transcends both.

All of us have experienced a void in our lives created by the death of someone special to us; be it a spouse, sibling, parent, grandparent or a dear friend.  Wouldn’t it be soothing to know your loved one is in a comfortable environment which he/she shares with others.

In the story, “After Here,” the main character, Joe Golden, finds himself in just such a setting after his fatal accident. Follow him in his journey, as he searches for his deceased wife Arlyne, who passed away a year before him.

“After Here” is available through Barnes and Noble and Amazon, and will be available for purchase after Dave Wolffe’s program. You can learn more about the book, and the author at: https://peacefulauthor.org
