Visiting author Stephen Seitz

Friday, August 16 at 11:00 am


Come and meet Stephen Seitz. Stephen is an author, journalist, and editor based in Vermont, who is paying us a visit during his vacation to East Dennis. He has covered news in the upper Connecticut River Valley for more than a decade; his journalism and cinema commentary have appeared in a number of northern New England newspapers, including the New Hampshire Union Leader. (Steve was the first reporter who made it into the flood zone in the disastrous Alstead, NH, floods of 2005.) The better-known people Steve has interviewed include James Earl Jones, Jerry Lewis, an original cast member of every "Star Trek" series, former presidential candidates Howard Dean, Joe Lieberman and Wesley Clark, Sen. George McGovern, and authors Jodi Picoult and Dennis Lehane, among many others.


A lifelong Sherlock Holmes enthusiast, Steve wrote Sherlock Holmes and the Plague of Dracula, which is going strong after seven years. His just released crime mystery, entitled Secrets Can't Be Kept Forever, came out in June.
