Come to the Hoboken Library Festival in Church Square Park on Oct 15 and meet Charles Salzberg and Other Local Authors and Poets!

12 Oct

Come join us on October 15, 2022 from 11 am-4 pm, in Church Square Park across from the library’s main branch at 500 Park Ave in Hoboken.  Local authors will be giving book talks and readings throughout the day.  Plus you can stop by the local author tent to meet them and have them sign copies of their books.  There will also be music and fun events for children and teens.

Our local authors include Charles Salzberg, who was born and raised across the river in New York City. He began his career as a journalist and book reviewer before becoming a novelist himself.

His first novel, Swann’s Last Song, was nominated for a Shamus Award for Best First PI Novel. Salzberg continued the Henry Swann series with Swann Dives In, Swann’s Lake of Despair, Swann’s Way Out, and Swann’s Down.

Salzberg has also written three stand-alone novels, Devil in the Hole (named one of the best crime novels of 2013 by Suspense magazine) and Second Story Man (nominated for a Shamus Award and a David Award and winner of the Beverly Hills Book Award), and his latest Canary in a Coal Mine.

Canary in a Coal Mine stars PI Pete Fortunato, a former cop, who is hired to find a missing husband, but when the husband turns up dead, Fortunato finds himself solving an even bigger mystery, his client disappears and he finds himself accused of theft by the Albanian mob. Can he find the money and clear his name?
