"Calu and Hart have brought a vital piece of our national memory back and combined it with a modern, uplifting tale in this exciting novel. Bravo!" — William Mastrosimone, playwright, Extremities

Authors John P. Calu and David A. Hart will be signing their highly anticipated novel, Trenton, at Classics Book Shop in Trenton on Saturday, October 16 from 12:00−2:00PM.

Trenton is a two-part story with roots in the American Revolution. Part One follows John Hart of Hopewell, New Jersey, an unheralded signer of the Declaration of Independence whose family saga is filled with the passions of his time. In the explosive second part, Luis Alma, the son of Cuban immigrants and a reluctant hero, struggles to hold his family together against a backdrop of crime, corruption, and murder. As the mystery unfolds to link the Alma family to the Harts of Hopewell, a young man from the wrong side of the tracks discovers that the key to Trenton’s future may lie in a secret from its past.

Calu and Hart, both longtime Trenton area residents, have enjoyed a productive collaboration as novelists since 2003 including a five-volume adventure series featuring colorful Garden State sites, obscure local legends, and everyday mysteries along the Jersey Shore and in the Pine Barrens. Trenton, the team’s most ambitious work to date, will be published October 4, 2010. For details about the book visit
