Author Visit - Gary L. Stewart

On Thursday, August 28th, at 7:00 PM, the library will be pleased to host national bestselling author Gary L. Stewart.  Mr. Stewart is the author of "The Most Dangerous Animal of All," published early this year.  Mr. Stewart's book, written along with Susan Mustafa, chronicles his decade-long search for his birth parents, which led him to a chilling conclusion about his father and potential connection with the Zodiac Killer.  

This event is sponsored by the Friends of Freeman Library.  Schroeder's Book Haven, in League City, will provide copies of Mr. Stewart's book for sale.  

Freeman Library Celebrates Local Authors

As Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Library continues to celebrate our 50th anniversary, we’ll also be celebrating our local authors on Saturday, 8/23

Interested in becoming an author yourself?  Panel discussions and presentations by local authors are on the schedule and cover topics such as, “Finding Your Own Voice”, “What’s new in Publishing/Self-Publishing” and “How I Got Published” just to name a few. 

Want to learn more about our local authors?  Sixteen are scheduled to appear, among them poets, children’s authors, science fiction authors, historical fiction authors, romance authors and more.  Including author readings and book signings, you will also have a chance to meet some of them by visiting the author tables set up around the library. 

A Little Fizz, Some Boom & Lots of Read!
