Meet the Author: Rhiannon Navin
March 24, 2019 
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join critically acclaimed author Rhiannon Navin as she discusses her debut novel, Only Child. Told from the perspective of a 6-year-old boy, Only Child is a dazzling and tenderhearted debut about healing, family, and the exquisite wisdom of children, who remind us that sometimes the littlest bodies hold the biggest hearts, and that the quietest voices speak the loudest.

• 30- to 40-minute author talk
• Q & A
• Book sales and signing
Free and open to the public. Light hors d’oeuvres served.

About the Book:
Squeezed into a coat closet with his classmates and teacher, first-grader Zach Taylor can hear gunshots ringing through the halls of his school. A gunman has entered the building, taking 19 lives and irrevocably changing the very fabric of this close-knit community. While Zach’s mother pursues a quest for justice against the shooter’s parents, holding them responsible for their son’s actions, Zach retreats into his super-secret hideout and loses himself in a world of books and art. Armed with his newfound understanding, and with the optimism and stubbornness only a child could have, Zach sets out on a captivating journey toward healing and forgiveness, determined to help the adults in his life rediscover the universal truths of love and compassion needed to pull them through their darkest hours.

About the Author:
Rhiannon Navin grew up in Bremen, Germany, in a family of book-crazy women. Her career in advertising brought her to New York City, where she worked for several large agencies before becoming a full-time mother and writer. She now lives outside of New York City with her husband, three children, two cats, and one dog. Only Child is her first novel.

By the style of the power boats, it looks to be 1940s. I believe the double-ender at the dock
with the mast was the training vessel for the Southport Sea Scouts."

Rare Southport Harbor photo circa 1920

(click on image on enlarge)
Southport Harbor circa 1920
To the right of the PYC clubhouse, it appears that a pillar is visable from the
Oliver H. Perry house in the wooded front yard.
"The lower right hand corner of the plate is missing but it does not detract from the main image. The large power boat in front of the clubhouse maybe an Elco and looks very similar to the powerboat owned by Erwin Jennings, a (PYC) club member. In the lower left hand corner there appears to be a gentleman wearing a "boater" who might be holding a fishing pole. It's a great photograph."
 -Arthur Jennings
Many thanks to Arthur Jennings for sharing another incredible and rare image from the past.

Wednesday, March 13: Bohemian Rhapsody (PG-13, 2hr 13m, 2018)

Bohemian Rhapsody
 is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.It’s awards season!
