Local author Deborah Rafferty Oswald will visit the library to discuss her newly published book "The Girls of Haviland," a coming of age mystery which takes place in 1918 Brewster, Carmel, Mahopac, and Manhattan. The author's inspiration for writing the book came from archived articles in the Putnam County Courier and The Drew Seminary for Girls. Deborah will demonstrate how archival newspaper research provides the writer with a whole picture of the climate of the era in which the novel takes place. This presentation is geared toward readers ages 12-15 as well as fans of local historical fiction and is being offered in collaboration with the Southeast Museum.
