"The Crooked Branch", Book Talk by Local Author, Jeanine Cummins

Sunday Sep 14, 2014, 1 p.m.

On Sunday, Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. best-selling local author, Jeanine Cummins, will present a book talk on her novel, The Crooked Branch, described by Booklist as, “Wonderfully written, with strong, compelling characters, it is a deeply satisfying combination of sweeping historical saga and modern family drama, a gentle reminder of the ever-reaching influence of family.”

Jeanine studied creative writing at Towson University, before living in Belfast for several years. In 1997, Jeanine moved to New York City, where she spent ten years working in the publishing industry before she turned to writing full time. She now resides right here in Piermont.

Jeanine's fiction is deeply influenced by Ireland, where both her novels are set. Her stories draw on her Irish and Puerto Rican heritage, and the blend is uniquely American.
