  • Three event highlights
    1 Makayla Yokley will visit Towanda Public Library on Saturday, during which time she will read excerpts from her novel, “The Ruby Curse.”
    2 Her novel is a steampunk adventure. Heroes come in all shapes and sizes... though they’re not usually escaped convicts. Just like seventeen-year-old Violet Seymour, whose got a criminal record so thick you could use it as a doorstop. Being the only person to ever escape the highest maximum security prison in the steam-and-clockwork powered nation of Arcova, everyone and their mother wants Violet’s head on a plate. So when Violet is suddenly thrust into a heroic role, being a link in an ancient bloodline of heroes, she’s a teensie bit skeptic.
    3 She will have a question and answer session after the reading, and will have copies of the book available to sign and purchase for $20.
