Hometown Stories: Long Island as Inspiration

This library program is suitable for patrons over the age of 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 to discover how the unique makeup of her island home allowed Jeannie to create settings that are the perfect places to set down her characters. Additionally, Jeannie will talk about the large extended family on her dad’s side, the story of how they came to Long Island in the late 1920s, and how her history informs and enriches the books she writes.
