Chris Weston, local author of “Hawgeye” and the January 2014 release of “A Baseball Man, will offer a program at the Petoskey District Library (PDL) on Monday, December 23 beginning at 4:00 p.m. in the Youth Program Room at the library, 500 E. Mitchell St in Petoskey.

The program will last 45 minutes to an hour and Mr. Weston, a fan of short stories, will use some of his own short stories, including the 2011 Michigan Hemingway Society’s award winning entry entitled “The River’s Best,” to relate his experiences and reinforce the values of reading and writing in a fun way.  Weston will be available for autographs after the program and both books will be available to purchase in paperback at $8.99 and hardcover at $14.99 for as long as there are people interested in purchasing a copy.  There are a limited number of copies “A Baseball Man” available since it is in pre-release.

Find out more here: http://www.petoskeylibrary.org/local-author-to-visit-the-library/

Since Weston believes that it is important to give back to communities, 30% of the list price will be given to PDL.
