New comedic novel by local poet and author
HIGHLANDS, NJ – The Highlands Borough Arts Council and the Borough of Highlands Recreation Department are pleased to co-sponsor a reading by local novelist and poet, Laury A. Egan, on Wednesday, October 10, 7:30 – 9:00 pm at the Highlands Community Center, 22 Snug Harbor Avenue. The celebration will feature the comedic novel, Fabulous! An Opera Buffa, a madcap tale that Kirkus Reviews calls an “hilarious, fast-paced indulgence that’s addictively entertaining,” and a poetry chapbook, Presence & Absence, which deals with situations that arise with aging.
Ms. Egan will read from both titles, answer questions about writing fiction and poetry, and will sign books.
