Chasing North Star
Presented by author Heidi McCrary
Thursday, October 19 at 6:30 PM
An Otsego graduate, author Heidi McCrary’s debut novel, Chasing North Star borrows heavily from her time growing up in Alamo, just a short drive from Otsego. Described as dark humor, the story tells the tale of a band of siblings growing up with a mentally unstable mother who can’t help herself, and their journey to finding forgiveness. This bittersweet coming-of-age story features many locations and events that local readers will find especially entertaining. Learn more about Heidi at www. heidimccrary.net and www.facebook.com/HeidiMcCraryAuthor. Signed copies of “Chasing North Star” will be available for purchase after the presentation.
Dad, A Diary of Daring and Questioning
Presented by author Robert Weir
Thursday, November 16 at 6:30 PM
“My dad and mom took care of me when I was young. When my dad became old and needed me, I simply returned the favor.” This sentiment was the philosophical mantra of Robert’s story of his remarkable five-year journey into the realm of parental care. Robert says. “Caring for him was a challenge, but we talked in ways we never had before, and the rewards of being together were tremendous.” In his presentation, Robert will talk about those rewards. He will have signed copies of his books for sale.
