Author Tim Parker and “Wispa”


Local Author Tim Parker will be at the library to read from and sign his new book “Wispa” on Monday, May 18th from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

“Wispa” is set in and around the Quabbin Reservoir. Below is a description of the story:

“A driven Wall Street executive returns to her alma mater for a college reunion in the picturesque Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts. Constant devotion to her employer at the cost of having a life of her own had taken its toll. Pam felt she needed a few days away for a change of pace.

Being accustomed to fending for herself, falling in love was the furthest thing from her mind. Striking up a casual conversation with Jake over a cup of coffee at an old haunt becomes the start of a long adventure that turns her world upside down.”
