The Town Book Store will be hosting a Meet & Greet for author William Cort on April 27, 2018 from 2:00-4:00 PM
for his novel Finding Ridley.
Millionaires, a mini dachshund, and dreams of old Manhattan inspire a writer to leave monotony behind and follow
a 1930s murder mystery that leads him to love instead.
Rick Gordon is accustomed to losing. He decides it’s time for a change after finding himself single and out of work again with no one for moral support but his two meddling friends and a precocious dachshund. A box of old family photos reveals an odd mystery his deceased uncle had tucked away for him. When Rick makes the unsolved Ridley murders the focus of his first novel, he has no idea how close it will take him to the edge before bringing him back to the love and happiness he’s always been seeking.
William Cort is a long-time newspaper, magazine, and digital copywriter who’s covered everything from concrete to colon health. A 1987 graduate of Westfield High School, he lived in Fanwood for many years. He splits his time between New York City and Lebanon Township, NJ with his wife, Debbie, and their dachshunds, Lucy, Ricky, and Ethel.

The Town Book Store will be hosting a Meet the Author/New Book Launch event for Westfield author Matt
Myklusch's 6th novel, Order of the Majestic, on Saturday, May 4, 2019 1:00-3:00 PM. If you are in the area, come
by for magic, prizes, and signed books!
Joey Kopecky’s world gets turned upside down when an old magic set leads to a shocking discovery. Magic is real—
but only if you believe in it. He gets the chance to work with Redondo the Magnificent, a reclusive, once-great celebrity magician who might have gotten his last assistant killed. Soon Joey is swept up into a centuries-old conflict between two rival societies of magicians—the Order of the Majestic, who fights to keep magic alive and free for all, and the dark magicians of the Invisible Hand, who hoard magic for their own evil ends. The endless battle for control of magic itself has reached a tipping point. For Redondo and the Order to survive, Joey must inherit the lost legacy of Harry Houdini. Will he prove himself worthy, or will the Invisible Hand strike him down? The answer will depend on Joey’s ability to believe, not just in magic, but in himself.
Local author Matt Myklusch is the author of six novels for middle-grade readers including Order of the Majestic, the Jack Blank trilogy, and the Seaborne series.

The Town Book Store will be hosting a Meet & Greet for Westfield resident Joshua Suri, who writes under the name
Emilio S. Cot on Saturday May 11, 2019 from 2:00-4:00 PM. He will be signing copies of his book, My Dreams and
Me: My Life Reflected through Dreams.
There’s a complex science behind dreaming, but this book is not about that. It is about the author’s experiences – Family, Friendship, Marriage, Romance, Parenting, Work, Recreation, Fear and more – and how they emerge in his dreams. It explains how his understanding of who he is was shaped by analyzing his dreams. In the end, it is a book for anyone, academicians and lay people alike, who wants to learn more about themselves, as we all live, we all experience, we all sleep and we all dream.
Let this book be an encouragement to all readers so that they can think about their lives through the prism of their own dreams.
Joshua Suri spent over thirty-five years in healthcare research, marketing and sales, but has been writing all of his life. He was born and raised in Paterson, NJ, but now lives in Westfield, NJ with his wife. Emilio’s two sons are both in the TV/Film industry and are constantly encouraging him to write more and push the limits of his experiences and writings.
When he’s not writing, Joshua spends a lot of time traveling with his wife, playing golf and tennis and playing in a variety of bands and jam groups.
