Authors to discuss works in Sylva

Written by 

Two authors will present their latest works on Oct. 13 at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva. Ava Lindsey Chambers will speak at 2 p.m., with Amy Cortese at 5 p.m.

Chambers will present her novel No Reservations, which tells the story of Mary, a young woman who thought she knew who she was. She lived in a happy home with two loving parents but soon finds out they are not her natural parents. The revelation sets her off on a journey to find out just where it is she came from and who she truly is.  

Cortese will discusses her book, Locavesting, which looks behind the scenes of the local investing movement, where, in dozens of towns and cities across the country, a vast experiment in citizen finance is taking place. From Brooklyn, N.Y. to Port Townsend, Wa., residents are banding together to save their small businesses and Main Streets from extinction.
