CICERO — This week, the Northern Onondaga Public library (NOPL) dives into two programs celebrating local authors.
On Oct. 20, the Cicero Branch will host Danielle Dexter (Danie Jaye), author of “Stupid Love,” book one of “The Salt City Diaries,” a romance novel based in Syracuse. The book shares the vibe of “Sex and the City” meets “Gossip Girl” with actual events inspired by the author’s real life. The event will start at 6 p.m., consisting of a presentation and Q&A. In addition, there will be a drawing for a signed copy of Dexter’s new book, thanks to the Cicero Friends group, which sponsored the event.
Later in October, NOPL takes you to a spookier setting with a Murder with a Medical Examiner event on Monday, Oct. 24, at 6 p.m. at Brewerton Branch. The former medical examiner of Onondaga County, and published nonfiction author, Mary Jumbelic, MD, will present local murders and cracking cases using stories from her 25-year career.
NOPL will continue to celebrate local authors in the coming months, welcoming Rochester-based horror author Rachel Harrison on Nov. 28 and Syracuse-based New York Times bestselling author Dana Spiotta on Dec. 19.
More information about the authors, their books, and event details can be found at nopl.org/events.
