This event is free for adults and will be near the fireplace on the main level. Kourtney will have autographed books available for purchase. Refreshments will be served.
Six Train was a 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards Semifinalist. Since Six Train’s release in May 2013, Heintz was featured in Connecticut’s Republican American. The article was picked up by the Associated Press and ran nationally. She was also a guest on CT Style. In Wisconsin, she was featured in the Price County Daily and the Park Falls Herald.
She’s been touring with her book during the past 14 months. She started with several local appearances in CT in the spring of 2013 and then headed out to Butternut, WI, to celebrate Pioneer Days in July 2013 with an author reception and rode in their parade. Her book signing in Butternut sold out in under two hours. She was also invited by RJ Julia Booksellers to speak at a local author night in Madison, CT. She spoke and signed books at Hart House at the University of Toronto. She had an author night that included exhibiting her photography from the book and signing books at Salon 2b in New York, NY.

Join us on Monday, August 11, 2014, when we discuss Book of Ages: the Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin by Jill Lepore.
A revelatory portrait of Benjamin Franklin's youngest sister and a history of history itself. Like her brother, Jane Franklin was a passionate reader, a gifted writer, and an astonishingly shrewd political commentator. Unlike him, she was a mother of twelve. Benjamin Franklin, who wrote more letters to his sister than he wrote to anyone else, was the original American self-made man; his sister spent her life caring for her children. They left very different traces behind. Making use of an amazing cache of little-studied material, including documents, objects, and portraits only just discovered, Jill Lepore brings Jane Franklin to life in a way that illuminates not only this one woman but an entire world--a world usually lost to history. (Descriptive content by Syndetics, a Bowker service.)
Copies of the book will be available at the library the evening of Monday, July 14, following the General Book Club discussion. For more information contact Teresa Iversen at 815-756-9568, x270 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
