The Friends of the Hudson Area Library is pleased to present local author, Daniel B. Region for an afternoon literary reading and book signing on Sunday, November 2nd at 3pm. Tales From Thurmons Corner, a fictional memoir, will be presented at McDaris Fine Art Gallery, 623 Warren Street in Hudson. This event is free and open to the public.
Region’s new book, the first in a trilogy, is the story of Dave Lang, a man who returns to the small Midwestern community where he was born, in search of something he has lost in his life.
Revisiting various moments of his early life, he regains the simplicity of living life fully with innocence and enthusiasm and learns that placing value on time and life gained not lost, is a blessing that is renewed every day, with every breath we take.
Tales from Thurmons Corners celebrates the quiet strength, common sense and resilience of the people who inhabit the flatland prairie.
“Daniel Region has an authentic voice. His people will become your people. His America will become your America.” says Julia Cameron, author of The Artist’s Way.
Daniel B. Region’s professional artistic life has taken numerous paths. For thirty-two years Mr. Region was a professional “On Air” radio and television broadcaster. For 17 years he was heard daily as the “Voice” of the Emmy Award winning daytime drama As The World Turns. He was also a theatre, film and television actor in New York City for twenty years.
