Local Author Visit!

Join us in welcoming local author John Cape (pictured left) this Saturday, November 14th, from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM.  Mr. Cape will be present to discuss his most recently published book, Oil Dusk, which, according to the author's website, is  summarized as follows:  "The MacCasland family struggles to survive when the dollar crashes and the United States is starved for oil. Gas prices soar, store shelves empty and jobs are almost nonexistent. When brutal gangs start looting, it becomes clear that anyone still living in the suburbs needs a Plan B."
