Tentatively scheduled for 9:05am  Rhode Island Author , Robert A. Geake

will discuss his ne release,  " New England Citizen Soldiers"

Many of the leaders and heroes of the Revolutionary War are well known to most Americans. Lesser known are those unsung heroes or citizen soldiers who first enlisted with local militias before being assigned to units of the Continental Line and sent away to fight in states and regions far removed from their homes and families. In New England, these also included men of the sea who signed aboard privateers or became part of the Mariner brigades that became indispensable in navigating waterways and ferrying troops into position. It is also the larger story of their struggle to maintain their loyalty to their home states, property and family. Author and historian Robert Geake uncovers the untold story of ordinary citizens who became united in the cause for freedom.

Tentatively Scheduled for 9 am Author Terry L. Nau

Voices of the Vietnam War is an oral history told by the soldiers who fought, and others who were impacted by the fighting halfway around the world, most especially the wives and siblings who waited at home. This book listens to two people who were against the war and had to take their own philosophical stand, often against their own families and friends. The book features chapters personally written by three military veterans. Two wives tell the story of how they waited at home while their husbands fought in Vietnam, relying on letters and television news for information. Decorated combat officer David Christian is the strongest voice in the book, describing his unit’s war experiences and then detailing the loss of his brother Doug to Agent Orange-linked cancer. Christian became a leading advocate for veterans’ disability pensions and helped gain government approval for Agent Orange benefits. Vietnam War veteran Terry Nau wrote and edited this book, his fifth on the subject. He interviewed soldiers from his artillery unit, high school friends who went to war, and also convinced acquaintances to tell their own story in their own words.

Rhode Island author, Coral Isabelle Aurora will discuss, " The Teenager's Guide to Surviving a Horror Film"
Hello, I am your guide. Your spirit guide.
Every year, the haunted Mathswell mansion lures eight teenagers into its depths on Halloween night. As a previous victim cursed to wander the estate, Jacqueline uses her expertise on horror films to guide the newest teens. But there is a problem. No one can hear her sarcastic voice.
Keeping eight teens alive shouldn't be hard. But Fannie is addicted to dead languages, Hannah is infatuated with vampires, Jessica is more air than brain, Hal is shallow and greedy, Mandy makes bad life decisions, Aven is in permanent denial, and Lewis likes to feed the wildlife.
Finally, there's Jack. He's geeky, handsome, protective, and everything she wants in a boyfriend. She never experienced first love when she was alive. Why does her heart keep longing, when science deems, she doesn't have one? More than anything she wants to save him, she's even willing to fight for him.
Following the thirty rules to surviving a horror film, would you survive?

Tentatively scheduled for 9:05 am , Author D'Anne Olsen Ph.D. will discuss her book

, 'What Shall Come Hereafter"

Death is universally feared because it is the Great Unknown.But it need not be quite so unknown. We now have reports from the near-death experiencers, mystics, clairvoyants, philosophers, poets, and mediums. We have the records of those who, under hypnosis or in trance, have told us about the afterworld. Based on a lifetime of research and careful reflection, Dr. D’Anne Olsen’s latest work What Shall Come Hereafter examines the many amazing commonalities in these reports and provides the tools necessary to not only support others’ passing and support your own bereavement process, but also help the reader be less fearful of their own death.

At 9:05 am Rutland, Mass.Author Jean M. Grant will discuss, " A Hundred Breaths"

Simon MacCoinneach's vengeance runs deep. The blade is the only way to end the blood-thirsty Nordmen's reign upon Scottish soil. His soul might be lost, but the mystical Healer he kidnaps from the isles could be the answer for his ailing mother…and his heart.

Isles-born Gwyn reluctantly agrees to a marriage alliance with this heathen Scot in return for the sanctuary of her younger brother from her abusive Norse father. Her brother's condition is beyond the scope of her Ancient power, for larger healings steal breaths of life from her own body.

As Simon and Gwyn fight to outwit her madman father and a resentful Norse betrothed, Gwyn softens Simon's heart with each merciful touch. Gwyn's Seer sister foresees a bloody battle—and an end to the Nordmen—but Simon will also die. Will Gwyn save Simon on the battlefield even if it means losing her last breath?

Julia is an American medical doctor fleeing her own privileged background todeliver health care to remote African communities, where her skills really make a difference. Carl is also an American, whose experiences as a black man in the United States have led him to volunteer in Africa. The two come together as colleagues (and lovers) as Liberia is gripped in a brutal civil war. Then Julia is kidnapped by child soldiers on a remote jungle road, and Carl is "rescued" and evacuated against his will by U.S. Marines. Back in the U.S., Carl turns to a Rhode Island doctor who has been a mentor to them both. With the help of a smuggler, they return to Africa illegally and begin the dangerous work of finding and rescuing Julia. This is an unforgettable thriller grounded in real events. A short preface and several appendices add background on Liberia's complex U.S.-linked history, and a glossary illuminates Liberia's colorful Kreyol patois.
