Local author Peter Miller to hold book-signing at Annie’s Book Shop Sat.

LACONIA — Meredith author Peter Miller will be at Annie's Book Shop in Laconia on Saturday, Aug. 23, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to personally inscribe copies of his three books. 

The three books that will be available for signing are: "Jane Varney Durgin - Trick Rider, Quaker Preacher, Opponent of Slavery - Her Life and Times," published in June, is a biography of the Lakes Region's legendary free spirited Quaker, whose originality and courage set her apart. "So Fade the Lovely," an off-beat mystery set in the Lakes Region in 1967, combines humor, a love story, and touches of small town life with suspense. "Seven Canterbury Tales Retold" is a collection of short stories told by pilgrims as they travel to holy sites in Europe and the Far East. 

The stories, written in verse, range from the comical to the profound. Miller's current work-in-progress, a novel titled "This Train Is Bound for Glory: A Story of the Underground Railroad in New Hampshire," will be published when it is completed. There will be an opportunity to talk with Miller about his books and the writing process while he is at Annie's.
