Saturday, July 12, 2014 - 4:00 pm Author, Jon Ballard will be on hand to talk about and sign copies of his debut novel, "Year of the Poets". In this novel, it’s the bicentennial year of 1976 at the Davenport Summer Retreat for Artists, and fifty-nine year old Arthur Honeyman—lothario, vagabond, carpenter and, above all, renowned versifier—has his hands full: carrying on simultaneous affairs with two poetesses, composing his first new manuscript of poems in years, and vacillating between making contact with his estranged adult son, Pablo, or just letting him be. Along the way, Honeyman’s conviction that there are two kinds of people—“those who hold onto things, and those who get on with things”—will be put to the test, and he’ll finally have to decide which kind of person he wants to be.

Other News: Dianna Gabaldon's latest book in the "Outlander" series, "Written In My Own Heart's Blood" is on-sale June 10, 2014. Copies of her long awaited novel are available nationwide from the link above.
