Author will discuss his new novel about trees

An author and the inspiration for his novel, “Treehugger,” will discuss the book at 7 p.m. Feb. 16 in the large meeting room in the library, 26 North Road.

Shamus Flaherty, who also wrote “The Great Blowout” and “Blue Collar Heaven,” will discuss his newest book about a man who left behind a life of debauchery and apathy to become one of America’s leading tree conservationists.

Matt Largess, a Jamestown resident who owns a company that preserves and restores forests, inspired the novel.
