Two local authors will be featured guests at a Fulton Public Library book reading to be held Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 6:00 p.m.
The authors, Craig Abbott and Joe Abbate, both from Fulton, have collaborated in writing Abbott’s autobiography, “Classified Terminally Ill: A Young Man’s Story of Beating the Odds.”
“Classified” is the uplifting and inspirational story of Craig’s life from shortly after birth, where his family was told that he would not live past the age of two, until today when he just celebrated his 23rd birthday.
It is a story of hope, faith, determination and humor in the face of overwhelming adversity.
The event will commence with interviews of the authors and the reading of several passages from the book. A question and answer period will follow that.
Afterwards, those in attendance will have a chance to meet the authors during a book signing time.
A preview of the book, which they label a “preography,” will be available for purchase for anyone who chooses.
There is no cost to attend, It is a free event sponsored by the Fulton Public Library, located at 160 S. First St., Fulton. Space is limited and the Library requests that those planning to attend to RSVP by calling 592-5159.
