Dean Whitlock, Sat. Nov 25 — reading & Q&A for FINN’S CLOCK

FINNSCLOCK-large

Come meet Dean Whitlock, local author from Thetford, VT, read from his latest book, Finn’s Clock, a young adult novel set in Boston of 1853.

“It’s 1853. Steam is threatening sail, factories are displacing tradesmen, and the immigrants are Irish—unwanted as ever. Young Finn O’Neill is learning the trade of a boatman from his father, when into Boston Harbor sails a Chinese junk, bearing mysteries and magic….”

Dean will talk about the art of writing as well as do a Q&A in addition to his reading. This is Dean’s sixth book in print.
