Kansas City Authors on Display
September 11, 2012
This month at the Kearney Branch, you can check out a plethora of fabulous books by folks who live right here in our area. Heck, maybe one of the authors is your neighbor! The display table, that's front and center in the library, puts local, traditionally published authors at your fingertips.
Fantasy lovers, pick up Elizabeth C. Bunce’s novel, A Curse Dark as Gold, an intriguing retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale, or Roderick Townley’s exciting story of reincarnation and murder, The Red Thread. Stanley E. Banks’ book of poems, Blue Beat Syncopation, might surprise you. Wyatt Townley offers a beautifully photographed volume covering the early days of the Kansas City Ballet in words and pictures. Hate List by Jennifer Brown will grab you at page one and never let you go. On the dark side, check out Matthew Eck’s gritty, contemporary war story, The Farther Shore. And then to lighten your mood, cook up a feast from Doug Worgul’s cookbook, A Table Full of Welcome.
The greater Kansas City area is a mecca for talented professional writers. We’ve got a sampling of their work on display at the Kearney Branch. Check them out!
