On Saturday, October 22nd, the writers of Chester County Fiction made an in-store appearance at Chester County Book and Music Company. Nine of the thirteen writers were on hand to discuss the origin of their stories and their writing process. The writers who attended the event were: Robb Cadigan, Wayne Anthony Conaway, Peter Cunniffe, Terry Heyman, Joan Hill, Nicole Valentine, Jacob Asher Michael, Eli Silberman and Jim Breslin. Book Cover Photographer David James also attended. Chester County Fiction contains sixteen stories from authors who live and work in Chester County, Pennsylvania. The short stories explore our common history and shared bonds. The collection includes stories about people in transition, struggling to find their place and peace in the community they live in. They are tales about love and loss, violence and heartbreak. The attending authors signed books and mingled with readers for two hours. Chester County Book and Music Company is the largest independent bookstore in our area, and they promoted the event with a front window display and placement on their homepage with a link to our book trailer. They also provided tea and coffee, which was very much appreciated.
This was the first event since the stellar book launch on October 2nd which you can read about here.
The writers of Chester County Fiction are next scheduled to appear at BookPlace in Oxford, PA, on Sunday, November 6th from 4-6pm. BookPlace is an eclectic used bookstore and art gallery owned by Temple University English Professor Dr. Richard Beards. We’re looking forward to meeting up again!
