Franklin Library: Meet the Author - Jennie Coughlin - Sep 9

Meet the Author: Tuesday, September 9th at 6:30 PM

Franklin Public Library Meeting Room

Join Franklin native Jennie Coughlin for a discussion about how local history and area towns influence the fictional town of Exeter in her two books.  Jennie Coughlin wrote her first short story as a project for Nina Santoro's local history unit at Horace Mann Middle School. The history and lore of Franklin and the surrounding towns still influences her fiction, right down to the name — since the Franklin town fathers chose not to use the name Exeter, she borrowed it for her fictional small town. When she's not spinning tales of the Irish mob-infested small town, Coughlin is digital projects editor for a group of three newspapers in upstate New York.
