GALESBURG, Ill. (PRWEB) June 25, 2015
Author D.C. Moses will be featuring her novel, “Train from Thompsonville” (published by Trafford Publishing), at the 2015 Frankfurt Book Fair. The book follows a Polish family in upstate New York from the 1930s to the 1950s.
The fair will be held from 14-18 October, 2015, and will showcase books from around the world. Authors, publishers, agents and readers will be present to share in open discussion about literature.
“Train from Thompsonville” follows the Ludak family – immigrants from Poland – who are living in a factory town, dealing with unemployment and class and ethnic hostility. For Joanna Ludak, a teenager, life proves to be often adventurous and jubilant, but sometimes terrifying.
Joanna’s coming-of-age as a Polish-Catholic, blue-collar, scrubbed-but-culturally-hobbled youngster is a riveting fictional odyssey of painful confrontations, growing friendships with an array of varied minority persons and first love across class barriers.
A judge of the 18th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards called Moses’ book, “A beautifully-written coming of age story, reminiscent in its quiet descriptions of the universal anxiety and agony of late childhood of the work of W. Somerset Maugham.”
