Brighton Public Library Author Visit

Eric E. WrightRiptide
Brighton Public Library Sept. 5 @ 7:00pm.

Being a voracious but dissatisfied reader, Eric E. Wright plunged into the writing of suspense novels after disappointment with the lack of engrossing, contemporary stories featuring believable heroes. Out of that desire has come two award-winning suspense novels: The Lightning File and Captives of Minara. In the year they were published, each won the Word Guild award for best Canadian Christian suspense/mystery novel.

MinoraJoin us for a reading from Eric E. Wright’s latest novel “Riptide”, some refreshments and a chance to connect with this local author.

Want to read his book before the visit?  Come on in and check it out here at the Brighton Public Library!

Maureen Venton, Sharon Bugg, Roz Gomez, Jeni Dyment...and all the staff and volunteers make BPL a true hub of culture for Brighton.
