Literary historian, and Kinderhook resident, Jon Michael Varese comes to the Chatham Bookstore with his debut novel “The Spirit Photographer”. The novel conjures the Reconstruction era South, replete with fugitive hunters, voodoo healers, and dangers lurking in the swamp. The Spirit Photographer is an intense tale of death and betrayal that will thrill readers as they unravel the dreadful mystery behind the spirit in the photograph and what ultimately became of her.
Varese will read from his book, then join Chatham Bookstore’s Thomas Chulak for a conversation, and Q & A.
