Cranford breeds talent!
On Thursday, July 9th, at 7:30 PM, The Friends f the Cranford Public Library are sponsoring an event at the Cranford Community Center (220 Walnut Avenue), at which you can meet one of the examples of our home-bred talent.
Ed Robinson, who was the mayor of Cranford in 1992, will talk about his recently published novel, a mystery entitled A “Jersey Shore Angel.” He will also have copies of the book available for purchase and for signing. Admission to the event is free, and all are welcome.
A Cranford resident for many years, Mr. Robinson now lives in Sea Girt. “A Jersey Shore Angel.” is his first book. During Hurricane Sandy, Mr. Robinson had no power for nearly two weeks and sat by candlelight. This afforded him the perfect opportunity to sit down and start writing – something he had always wanted to try. The novel’s main character is Angel Barnacle, a decorated New York City detective who returns to his roots at the Jersey Shore, and starts a private detective agency chasing down wayward spouses. He becomes romantically involved with a client, a Broadway star, who becomes a victim of Hurricane Sandy.
It’s a great summer read, with “down home” connections for the NJ reader. So put your chair on the beach, your toes in the sand, and your nose in this book!
