Local Author Visit This Weekend!

We are excited to welcome Christine Dougherty to the Pinelands Library for a book signing this weekend on Saturday, November 19th from 1:00-3:00PM.

Christine Dougherty was raised in Tabernacle, New Jersey and has since lived in various towns in Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester Counties.

Drawing heavily from the landscape she knows, most of her works have at least some elements of South Jersey. As you read, you’ll realize that some of the locations, although renamed, are your own back yard.

A graduate of Shawnee High School in Medford, New Jersey and Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Christine has made her career and home in local towns.

Thrillers with elements of sci-fi and horror, Christine’s works are an entertaining read that will keep you turning the pages until the very last word! Check her books out at www.christinedoughertybooks.com
