Save the date: Prepare for a HUNT-A-BOOK lead up event

On Sunday, December 8, 2019 from 3-5pm at the Chesterfield Community Center, local author, journalist, teacher, set dresser, editor and spoken word artist, Joe Gannon will talk about books, writing, research and questions how an author deals with the truths of the past while writing for audiences in modern times. After Joe’s talk, there will be time for questions and edible treats.

Joe spent three years in the army, graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and received his MFA at Pine Manor College. During the Sandinista Revolution, he worked as a freelance journalist in Nicaragua and wrote for The Christian Science Monitor, The Toronto Globe and Mail and the San Francisco Examiner. At present, he writes a monthly column for the Daily Hampshire Gazette and the Valley Advocate, and teaches in Springfield.

His first novel, The Night of the Jaguar, published in 2014 by St. Martin’s Press, was named one of the best debut mystery novels by Booklist. His second novel, The Last Dawn, was published in 2016, and his next book, The Girl in the Well, is a fictional account of New York’s first sensational murder trial in 1800.

And what is a HUNT-A-BOOK? Watch this space, prepare to think about Chesterfield haunts, look for publicity that gives hints…and, and, AND…get ready to HUNT-A-BOOK.
