HARDWICK – The Galaxy Bookshop and Jeudevine Memorial Library will present an evening with author Stephen Kiernan on Tuesday, July 11, at 7 p.m. Kiernan will be at the Jeudevine Library to read from and talk about the writing of his latest novel, “The Glass Chateau,” a story set in post-WWII France. Books will be available to purchase from The Galaxy Bookshop, and a portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit the library.

“The Glass Chateau” is Stephen Kiernan’s fourth novel centered on WWII. In this book, he writes about the search for healing for individuals and for a country scarred by war. In a rural French chateau where stained glass has been made for over 400 years, men suffering the physical and psychological effects of war create glass to repair the windows of churches and cathedrals across Europe, and in the process may find a way to mend themselves.

Stephen Kiernan is an award winning journalist and the author of seven books, including “Universe of Two,” “The Curiosity” and “Last Rights.” He is also a musician who has recorded three CDs of solo instrumentals and composed music for dance, the stage, and documentary films. He lives in Vermont.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call (802) 472-5533 or visit galaxybookshop.com for a full schedule of events.
