As part of the new Monessen Public Library & Cultural Center Author Series, the Library will host two authors in January of 2018. A. J. Dudley, formerly of Belle Vernon, will hold a book signing on Saturday, January 6, 2018, from 1-4 PM. “The Feather” is her first novel in a new series entitled “Raven Crest”. It is a historical fiction book that takes place on a small island in the Irish Sea, called the Isle of Man. The time period is the dawn of the Renaissance, and tells the tale of Nicholas Monitari and Princess Arabella. Join the secret fellowship of Raven Crest and battle dark forces, while standing for your convictions. The books can be purchased through the website at www.RavenCrest.com.
