Author Talk with Jean Stone and John Young

September 14th at Falmouth Public Library

Falmouth Public Library is very pleased to host two authors with new novels set on Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod: veteran best-selling author Jean Stone, and debut literary author John Young.  Join us on Saturday, September 14 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM at the main library, 300 Main Street, Falmouth when Jean Stone will talk about A Vineyard Summer and John Young will discuss When the Coin is in the Air.  Learn about their writing process and listen to excerpts from their books.  We will experience two markedly different approaches to Cape and Islands fiction.  Signed books will be for sale courtesy of Eight Cousins Books.

Jean Stone, a best-selling novelist for over 25 years, will talk about her newest book, A Vineyard Summer. “In this sequel to A Vineyard Christmas, Annie looks forward to her first summer on the island. But questions arise … Will she be able to stay? Why does her new almost-perfect man suddenly have a different priority? And what’s with the body that shows up on her lawn?” This female friendship story is filled with heart.

Debut author John Young, an English teacher at the high school and college level, will talk about his first literary novel When the Coin is in the Air, which is set in Indiana, Falmouth and Cambridge. “Jason Blake struggles to understand and try to please an erratic father and a highly competitive older brother. (…) He tests himself by leaving home alone, first to Cape Cod at 20, then to England and Europe at 21 and – after a life-or-death clash with his father – on to Boston. Each adventure takes Jason farther from his father and brother. Each brings him closer to finding himself.” This is a suspenseful coming-of-age story.
