Please join me on Tuesday, September 10 at 6:30 p.m., when I will be doing a book presentation of The Curious Childhood of Wanton Chase (CCWC), at the Jamestown Philomenian Library (26 North Road, Jamestown, RI). Published by Woodhall Press in June 2019, this innovative book is the first one in the Rose Island Lighthouse Series, and chronicles the boyhood of Wanton Chase, who lived at the Lighthouse with his grandparents in the early 1900s.
Brian L. Wallin, a Rhode Island author and historian noted, “The Curious Childhood of Wanton Chase is the work of a talented quartet of Rhode Island women who have created a charming and historically rich account revolving around prominent Narragansett Bay landmark, the Rose Island Lighthouse. Although this book is aimed at a middle school audience, adults with take equal pleasure bouncing between the charming adventures of a young boy surrounded by a rapidly changing world.”
For the library presentation, I will be discussing some of the history contained within CCWC, do a brief reading, and then will be happy to answer any questions you might have. Copies of the book—both hardcover and paperback—will be available for purchase and signing.
So come on over to this wonderful library in beautiful Jamestown and hear entertaining and educational stories about the Rose Island Lighthouse!
