Local Author Dean Whitlock reads from "Fireboy" @ Latham Library

Join us as local author Dean Whitlock reads from his latest book. Fireboy is the third book in the Carver’s World series for young (and not so young) adults. Dean will also talk about how the three books came to be, including his three-week, 370-mile canoe trip down the Connecticut River from Canada to Long Island Sound, which inspired the fantasy world where the adventures take place.

“A fun, adventurous story set in a fantasy world similar enough to our own that the themes and characters feel naturally authentic. The plot itself is varied and far from predictable . . .” –Christopher D., Goodreads
“Fireboy is a fine fantasy read for teens and has enough heart to charm adults . . . It is easy and wonderful to be drawn into Fireboy’s world, and well worth the trip.” –Marc L., Amazon

Signed copies will be available for purchase.
