  2. Local Author Showcase
    • Start time: 06:30pm
    • End date: Wednesday, October 4th

Each author will introduce his/her book to the audience, followed by a question and answer period. Books will also be available for purchase and autographs. The event is free to attend and open to the public. Light refreshments will also be served.

      Melody L. Boulton will discuss her book, Amazing Adventures With Dev. Melody called on her years of experience as a practicing psychotherapis, hospice nurse, and long-term student of the Diamond Approach to write the moving story of her son, Devon, whose life and tragic death at the age of 23 will inspire readers and offer a tantalizing peek at other realities beyond this one.

      Eric Krantz will discuss his novel, The Slave Scam. Eric has always been intrigued by the study of history, and finds that writing historic fiction can bring it to life in an absorbing, informative way. His book examines the pre-Civil War relationship between two young white abolitionists and four young blacks, two of whom are escaped slaves. The six unite and come together as friends, all with a similar intent, to help raise the consciousness of the slaves down south.
