Author Reading – Thomas Shanklin – hosted by the Saint John Free Public Library

August 23, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

Join us on August 23rd at 7PM to meet Thomas L. Shanklin, author of While the City Slept (2017).

“While the City Slept is my way of mourning the loss of so much that was magnificent and historic.  It reminds us of what once was.  The story involves murder, arson and intrigue.  In telling the fictional tale of a mystery involving historical preservationists and a Commission on Urban Renewal, I bring to life what once was.  It is my hope that this work might also serve as a wake-up call to preserve what is left of a beautiful Victorian City.  Saint John is part of my Loyalist Ancestry.  It was and can again be, a jewel on the east coast of Canada.” – Thomas L. Shanklin
