Book Signings:

A River in TIme coverA River in Timeby Deborah L. Courville

Historical fiction/time travel novel that brings to life the people, events and customs of post Colonial rural northeastern Pennsylvania. Built in 1781 and operated today as a living museum, The Oldest House in Laceyville, PA, is the inspiration and setting for ‘A River in Time.’ The author, a docent at the House, draws from actual historical record as well as ‘informed imagining’ for the material of the book, creating a reality that is not only immediate and vibrant but also tantalizingly cloaked in the mists of history. Proceeds from the sales of the book ‘A River in Time’ will be donated to The Oldest House for its upkeep and ongoing operation.
