Panel Discussion and Book Signing with Authors of "Chester County Fiction" at Phoenixville Public Library

Phoenixville Public Library offers you the opportunity to support local writers and pick up some perfect last-minute gifts for the readers on your list. The Library will present a panel discussion and book signing by the authors of the new story anthology, Chester County Fiction, on Monday, December 19 at 7:00 PM. Jason Hafer, owner of Phoenixville’s former Wolfgang Books, will moderate the discussion.

Chester County Fiction is a collection of 16 stories from 13 authors who live and work in Chester County. The stories explore our common history and shared bonds. They are stories about people in transition, struggling to find their place and peace in their communities -- tales of love, loss, violence and heartbreak.

Chester County Fiction has received rave reviews since its release. Radio show host Steve Brodsky of WCHE called Chester County Fiction a “really important, interesting, and enjoyable collection” and referred to "Baptism", the short story by Phoenixville's own Robb Cadigan, as “world-class fiction.”

This event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required. For more information or to reserve a seat, call 610-933-3013 x32 or e-mail mpinto@ccls.org. Phoenixville Public Library is located at 183 Second Avenue, Phoenixville, PA.
