This Saturday, August 24, from noon to 2 p.m., join me at Wakefield Books in Wakefield, RI, where I’ll be signing copies of our new book, The Curious Childhood of Wanton Chase (Woodhall Press, 2019). The book chronicles the boyhood adventures of Wanton Chase, who lived with his grandparents at the Rose Island Lighthouse (Newport, RI) from 1910 to 1916.
Speaking about the book, Charlotte Johnson, a founding member of the Rose Island Lighthouse Foundation said, “These four talented women have superbly woven a young boy’s true-life stories with historical facts, original illustrations, and period photographs to create a book that is written in a style that is enjoyable to read, educational, and captivating for all ages. I heartily recommend it.”
So, if you’re looking for (very!) early Christmas presents or just trying to escape the muggy August heat, please stop by this charming book store, check out their excellent selection of local and national best sellers, say “Hi!” to me, and buy a copy (or two!) of CCWC.
I hope to see you there!
