Author Talk: Gary Gemme

Tuesday, August 21st at 6:30


Stop by the library for an author talk with local author Gary Gemme as he discusses his debut novel "Margaret's Dove."

In the spring of 1970, Margaret Gabriel is a carefree young woman destined for college and new adventures. But her father’s sudden illness alters her life, and she’s propelled into a marriage full of duplicity, violence, and despair. As her world collapses, Margaret is forced to abandon all of her hopes and dreams. Nicholas Avellino, a college freshman, carries a deep sadness over the death of his mom when he was a young boy. His only memory of her is watching the sunset together on the beach at Rock Harbor. When a sign from a dove unites Margaret and Nicholas, they begin an odyssey through the idyllic towns of Cape Cod. Their quest to recover lost memories becomes a journey of love and a search for a way to remain together. Can Margaret and Nicholas find a path to happiness or does tragedy loom?

Author Gary Gemme is a veteran of the US Navy and a recently retired police chief for the City of Worcester. He divides his time between Worcester and  Dennis, MA, Nashville, TN and Fort Myers, FL.
