Saturday, August 9, 10:30am--
Sara Humphreys

Now that our renovations are complete, we're ready to have some fun! Bestselling author Sara Humphreys will be at the Ashaway Free Library on Saturday, August 9, at 10:30AM for a signing, discussion, and Q&A for her newest book, Vampire Trouble. Sara stopped by last year and we had a fabulous time meeting her and exploring the worlds she creates in her books. This is a can't-miss event, especially if you're a fan of paranormal romance (and even if you're not, you may just find yourself eager to explore this genre once you hear Sara speak!). This event is free and open to the public. Please call the library at(401) 377-2770 for more information.
