Dean Whitlock to Present Reading at Latham Library: Dec. 7
December 02, 2017
Latham Library (on the Thetford Hill Green on Library Road, just down the street from Thetford Academy) is hosting a presentation for young people with Dean Whitlock on Thursday, Dec. 7, at 6:30 p.m.
Dean, who lives in Thetford, has just published his sixth book, Finn’s Clock.
This middle grade novel is a historical fantasy set in a time when steam is threatening sail, factories are displacing workers, and the immigrants are Irish – unwanted and under threat, but determined to make their place here. It’s 1853, and into Boston Harbor sails a sea-going Chinese junk, bearing magic, mysteries, and a firebrand named An-Ming.
On Dec. 7, Dean will present a reading, Q&A, and conversation for teens and children ages 10 and up, focusing on the characters and plot twists in Finn’s Clock.
