Author Visit with Claremary Sweeney
Local author, Claremary Sweeney, will be joining the Monday Morning Book Group on January 4th to discuss her book, Last Train to Kingston and answer questions.

Last Train to Kingston: On a chill November night Thea Lorimar arrives on the last train to the small village of Kingston, Rhode Island. She patiently waits for someone to meet her, unaware it will be her killer. South Kingstown's Detective Lieutenant Kara Langley must find the answers and catch the person responsible.

All are welcome! Registration required to receive the Zoom link. Email if you would like to purchase a signed copy of her book.
