Local Author Day Thomas A LevittThomas A. Levitt presents and signs The Wire Recorder

Sophie Hearn and Steve Elwood are childhood playmates during the post-World War II “red scare,” when both of their screenwriter fathers are affected by the blacklisting of suspected Communists in Hollywood. As the two children separate, reunite and separate again while growing to maturity through the decades of the mid-to-late twentieth century, they find it impossible to escape the long shadow of a time when political paranoia and witch hunts spiraled out of control.



Local Author Day James CurranJames Curran presents and signs Assumption Day

A tenuous cease-fire is threatened when a civil rights march is attacked in Londonderry, Northern Ireland in 1970. A young lady’s body is discovered in the wreckage. The one trustworthy inspector in the Royal Ulster Constabulary struggles to solve the crime before the region erupts in civil war.




Michael Smith Ph.D presents and signs To Catch a Black Hole from the Bottom of the Pond: A Memoir 

They spiraled around each other at half the speed of light – closer and closer, spewing out more energy than all the stars in the universe. And 1.2 billion years later, LIGO heard the last chirp of a primordial love song. This memoir will take you inside the mind and soul of the most precise measuring instrument ever built. Also, the story of a love affair with Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino wine, and a lovely Rainbow Face.
