Linda Merlino and Belly of the Whale

We have a lot of events going on in May, and one of the first one’s coming up is Linda Merlino’s author talk.  Merlino’s first book, Swan Boat Souvenir, was set in Boston and enjoyed a lot of local success.   Her newest book Belly of the Whale (April 2008), is also already highly recommended by reviewers.

The novel is about a young woman with breast cancer, Hudson Catalina, and the day she gives up hope – only to be taken hostage by a murderer more deadly than her disease.  Joann DiFabio of Identity Magazine says that Belly of the Whale “…is smartly crafted with the perfect combination of sympathy, suspense, and sentiment.”

So come to the library on May 5 at 7 PM to meet Linda Merlino and hear her read from Belly of the Whale.
