PORTHENRY-Rev. Bob White, former Presbyterian minister and author, has published his fourth book and second novel, "Hotbed in Tranquility." He will read from and discuss the book on Thursday, July 7, at the Sherman Free Library on Church Street in Port Henry at 6 p.m. the event is open to the public.
"Hotbed in Tranquility" is a book about a local politician, from the Susquehanna River town of Tranquility, who campaigns for Congress on a platform of safe gas-drilling in New York's Marcellus Shale field. The story contains a balance between facts on natural gas-drilling and a fictional high school romance that comes alight after a 20-year hiatus.
White is author of the novel "Susquehanna Scandal" and its companion biography, "Yours Truly, C. P. Avery." He has also published the true story of a woman's victory over breast cancer, "Love, Kilby."
