Author Raymond J. Howlett will host a visitation and book signing in the Adult Circulation Room of the main library at James V. Brown from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 29 to promote "The Nome Man," his second novel.
"The Nome Man" is about a man who inherits a strange power that he is unsure how to deal with. He finds himself standing on the edge of an abyss, wondering whether he should step off the edge and take his power with him, or turn around and try to deal with it somehow. Will he take that last step in life, or will he try to find another way to solve his problem?
Howlett is a Williamsport native whose experiences in the military and professionally offered him a wide variety of opportunities and the chance to travel all over the United States and abroad. Sparked by a visit to Maine and inspired to write by a visit to a famous author's house, Howlett published his first novel, "The Covered Bridge to Nowhere," in 2010.
Howlett's third novel will be available in late October or early November. Both books will be available for purchase. The event is free and open to the public.
