Hometown Stories: Long Island as Inspiration

This library program is suitable for patrons over age 13.

Take a trip around Long Island, and find out why USA Today bestselling author, Jeannie Moon, brought the charm of the small towns and communities where she grew up into her award-winning stories. Visit coastal hamlets on the North Shore, quirky downtowns, farms, vineyards and ocean beaches, and discover how the unique makeup of our island home allowed Jeannie to create settings that are the perfect places to set down her characters. Additionally, Jeannie will talk about her large extended family, the story of how they came to Long Island in the late 1920’s, and how her history informs and enriches the books she writes.
