Thirteen Cape authors to attend first Cape Cod Book Signing Affair

The literary event will benefit the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod
Thirteen local authors will gather for a book signing in Orleans on December 19.

Book lovers won't want to miss the first Cape Cod Book Signing Affair to be held on Saturday, December 19 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Addison Art Gallery, 43 South Orleans Road in Orleans. Gallery owner Helen Addison said authors and publishers often ask her gallery to host book signings. Addison thought it would be fun to invite several local authors to participate in a book signing on a grander scale. 

Just in time for holiday gift giving, more than a dozen Cape Cod authors of fiction and non-fiction will gather for the event. Addison said her gallery will forego income from book sales on December 19 and has instead asked the authors to make a donation from what would haven been the gallery's proceeds to the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod. Arts Foundation of Cape Cod Executive Director Julie Wake said her organization is honored to benefit from the gathering.

Addison expects the list of authors to grow before the actual day of the event. The authors who are already onboard are:

  • Jeannette de Beauvoir - "Asylum"
  • David Burns, MD - "Take a Deep Breath"
  • Rob Conery - "Winterland"
  • Yvonne DeSousa - "MS Madness"
  • Stephanie Foster - "Snacks for the Brain" and "Farms of Cape Cod"
  • Richard Gifford - "MacMillan Wharf"
  • Sarah Johnson - "The Lightkeeper's Wife"
  • Douglas Karlson - "Sleeper Cell"
  • Greg O'Brien - "On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer's"
  • Wendy Sheve - "Shadowwater"
  • Don Wilding - "Henry Beston's Cape Cod"
  • David Wright - "The Famous Beds of Wellfleet: A Shellfishing History"
