AuthorTalk with Loretta Kapinos – Springfield Tornadoes: Stories from the Heart

Monday, November 19th at 7:00

One June 1, 2011, a tornado ripped through Western MA and pictures began flooding the media.  Although not directly affected, the photos kept haunting Loretta Kapinos.  Later that summer, the Facebook page Springfield Tornado, established by Shaun Morse, issued a request for help in putting together a book.  Responding immediately, Kapinos collaborated with Morse and AuthorMikeInk.  The result was a beautiful book containing stories and pictures from the people who experienced the traumatic event.  Kapinos will visit the APL to promote the book on Monday, November 19th at 7:00.

 Please call 789-1550x4 or online at www.agawamlibrary.org to register for this program.  Books will be available for purchase and signing, with a portion of the proceeds being donated back to the families that lost their homes.  For more info, visit www.lorettajokapinos or www.authormikeink.com.
