Waterville Valley seems to have more than its fair share of talented residents and visitors – including a number of published authors.
On Friday, Aug. 31 from 8-9 p.m. the Rey Center will host several of our local authors who will read excerpts and share tales from their books.
Bob Fries and Tom Gross will delight us with tales from “A Hero is More Than a Sandwich: Tales of a ‘Volunteered’ Fireman,” which humorously recalls their service as volunteer firefighters in Waterville Valley. The book also includes a special tribute to the firefighters of 9/11 written by Tom Gross.
Ray Kucharski, author of “On the Waters: The Joys of Fly-Fishing,” will share a few of his fishing adventures that illustrate the joy he gets from every fishing day and each cast he makes. His stories are not only charming, but also provide some valuable tips on ways to catch those wily fish.
Author and photographer, Liz McNeill Jenkins, along with editors Margaret Turner and Lenny Emery, will enchant us with a reading of their children’s book, “It’s Good to be Me,” featuring Jamba the lovable canine narrating the riveting tale of when her sidekick Belle came to live with her from Brooklyn, NY. The two stars of the book will be in attendance, too, and will be available after the program for ear scratching and paw shaking.
This program will be held at the Rey Center, 2nd level of Waterville Valley Town Square, and is FREE and open to all! Books will be available to purchase and have signed by the authors.
