Title: Private Vegas
Author: James Patterson
Description: Private’s Jack Morgan has been hired to hunt down two men on a gleeful murder spree.

Author Talk and Book Signing – Carol Feller
Description: Carol Feller will discuss her first novel, Dancing Through Minefields. According to the author, “Dancing Through Minefields will have you silencing your phone and hanging out the ‘do not disturb’ sign. Anne Schroeder is a well-defined protagonist and you will not want to be interrupted as you travel her journey of fear, faith, and friendship. This novel will not simply be read, it will be felt. As you cringe at Anne’s husband’s anger, when your unbidden tears leak, while you crouch deeper into your seat, and after you’ve read the final word, you’ll know without a doubt that you’ve experienced Anne.”
