The Weekly AdirondackArea authors sold and signed books at the Old Forge Library’s annual Authors’ Fair on Tuesday, July 26.
The event was held on the grassy knoll of the Forge Motel and was held in remembrance of local authors Anne LaBastille and Ruth Timm who passed away this year.
Among the authors in attendance were Old Forge-area authors Linda Cohen and Peg Masters, co-authors of “Old Forge and the Fulton Chain of Lakes; Gary and Justin Van Riper, authors of the Adirondack Kids adventure series; and John Briant, author of the Adirondack detective series.
Briant is promoting the latest installment of his series, “Adirondack Detective – As Autumn Leaves Turn”, which is scheduled for release in the next few weeks.
“It consists of two cases for private detective, Jason Black. One is an abduction in the Adirondacks, and the second case covers the theft of honey bees near North Creek,” Briant said.
Longtime seasonal resident Nancy Lee Canfield was also present with her inspirational book, “A Rose for my Mother”.
Canfield said she has received 5-star reviews on Amazon.com and sales of the book are doing well in Great Britain, India, the Cayman Islands, and Italy.
