  • Second Novel Gets A Jump Start From NaNoWriMo

    Newtown writer Wally Wood will be at C.H. Booth Library on Wednesday, October 30, at 7 pm, for a talk and book signing of his most recent novel, The Girl In The Photo. This is the second work of fiction for Mr Wood, who previously published Getting Oriented on Create Space, a subsidiary of Amazon, in 2011. More importantly than promoting his novel, though, said Mr Wood, he will be talking about “How NaNoWriMo jump started my novel.”
