Jon Michael Varese in Conversation with Hollis Seamon
June 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Library is excited to welcome our next door neighbor and author Jon Michael Varese for the Kinderhook launch of his debut novel The Spirit Photographer! In conversation with Hollis Seamon (author and retired Professor of English at the College of St. Rose), Jon will discuss his background, his path toward fiction, and what led him to write a ghost story that deals not just with spirit photography, but with the larger issue of slavery’s legacies in the United States. If you loved Cold Mountain and The Alienist, this novel of historical suspense will be right up your alley! Join us as we celebrate our incredible local talent, and maybe even discuss some of our own Kinderhook ghosts. Books will be available for sale and refreshments will be served.
