Authors to speak at library Jan. 5

Gloucester Library, Main Street Center, will host two authors to speak on their new books next Thursday, Jan. 5.

Jennifer Orth-Veillon, a Gloucester native, will speak on “Beyond Their Limits of Longing: Contemporary Writers & Veterans on the Lingering Stories of WWI.”

M.C. Armstrong will speak about his book, “American Delphi.”

Orth-Veillon’s collection spotlights 62 of today’s eminent war writers on WWI that shaped the modern world.

Armstrong’s young adult novel is about a daughter who solves the mystery of her combat veteran father who was traumatized by the Iraq War. Both books present perspectives on current conflicts and social issues and were published by MilSpeak Books.

The authors will read selected passages from their books and will be available for book signings.

Registration for this free event is not required. The program will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 5. Call 804-693-2998 for more information.
