CENTER HARBOR — Well-known local author and illustrator Karel Hayes will celebrate Columbus Day Weekend with two author events at two local independent bookstores — Bayswater Book Company in Center Harbor and The Country Bookseller in Wolfeboro.
"This has been an amazing year for me," explains Hayes. "With three new books released since Spring, I have barely been able to come up for air, but I wanted to accommodate the requests of the two local bookstores who have supported my work from the very beginning." On Sunday, Oct. 11, Hayes will be signing in Center Harbor from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and in Wolfeboro from 2 to 4 p.m.
All of Hayes' books will be available at each location, but the emphasis will be on the three new releases — "Autumn Visitors" (the 4th in Hayes' Visitors series which began with the "Summer Visitors"), "The Mansion: An Old Winnipesaukee Mystery" (the 3rd in Andy Opel's Lake Winnipesaukee series which began with "The Witches" all illustrated by Hayes) and "Little Loon" written by Fran Hodgkins and illustrated by Karel Hayes.
