Port Jervis Library hosts brunch with some very talented authors

It was really nice to meet seven local authors at the recent Brunch with Authors held at Port Jervis' historic Port Jervis Free Library. These authors had copies of their books on hand for sale, and visitors enjoyed interacting with each one as they stopped by for this event on November 4. The authors also provided readings from their books during the three-hour brunch which was held upstairs in the children's section of the library. Congrats to these authors, and thank you to Port Jervis Free Library for hosting this opportunity to visit with these local writers.
