Riverow Bookshop in Owego recently announced author readings by John Nizalowski on Friday, Aug. 9 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.; and Katie Vaz, on Saturday, Aug. 10 from noon to 2 p.m.
Nizalowski, originally from Newark Valley, will be reading from his most recent publication, Chronicles of the Forbidden. Therein, he relays his experiences hiking and exploring the west, at times with his two young daughters. Chronicles is said to possess an “authentic voice of the land, and a deep knowledge of American Indian Lore”. Nizalowski teaches mythology, creative writing, and composition at Colorado Mesa University.
On Saturday, Katie Vaz of Endicott will be unveiling her third book, The Escape Manual for Introverts, detailing funny, sometimes absurd ways and excuses to escape painfully awkward social situations. Escape is filled with Vaz’s signature hand lettering and illustrations, from the silly to the sincere; it is sure to resonate whether you are an introvert or know one.
The bookshop is located at 187 Front St. in Owego. For more information, call (607) 687-4094, or find them on Facebook.
