Byrd’s Books Author Talk and Book Signing: The Bar Harbor Retirement Home for Famous Writers (and Their Muses), Sept. 25th
Join Byrd’s Books on September 25th at 7:00pm for a very special night with Connecticut author Terri-Lynne DeFino as she discusses and signs her latest book, The Bar Harbor Retirement Home for Famous Writers (and Their Muses).
About the book:
After famous author Alfonse Carducci goes to a retirement home, he finds that he suffers from writer’s block, but he forms a friendship with a woman who was severely crippled in an accident and finds a muse who inspires him to write again.
“DeFino’s latest novel is a tale that emphasizes that second chances, artistic redemption and true love — in all its forms — can come at any time and any age. DeFino has a unique gift for language that captures the nostalgia and still-sharp wit of her aging artists perfectly.”– RT Book Reviews
“Rediscover the sheer joy of writing…intriguing characters help keep the reader engaged.”– Booklist

About the author:
Terri-Lynne DeFino was born and raised in New Jersey, but escaped to the wilds of Connecticut, where she still lives with her husband and her cats. She spends most days in her loft, in her woodland cabin along the river, writing about people she’s never met. Other days, she can be found slaying monsters with her grandchildren. If you knock on her door, she’ll most likely be wearing a tiara. She’ll also invite you in and feed you, because you can take the Italian girl out of Jersey, but you can’t take the Jersey Italian out of the girl.
