An Unlikely Story is thrilled to present another local author panel highlighting nine amazing local authors from the area. Show your support and swing by the Second Story where each author will present and discuss their books in YA, and Adult. This is the perfect opportunity to meet the authors in the area and discuss how to become self-published. The authors attending the event are listed below. ABOUT THE AUTHORS: Marjorie Turner Hollman is a personal historian who loves the outdoors, and is the author of Easy Walks in Massachusetts, 2nd edition More Easy Walks in Massachusetts, and editor of Easy Walks and Paddles in the Ten Mile River Watershed. She has been a freelance writer for numerous local, regional and national publications for the past 20 years, and has recorded multiple veteran's oral histories, now housed at the Library of Congress. For more information about Marjorie and her books visit marjorieturner.com/easy-walks.  David G. Hanrahan was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1936. He graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn with a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Design in 1958. He received the Organization of the Army medal and was designated a Distinguished Military Graduate. While in the Army, Hanrahan graduated from the Airborne School at Fort Benning, Georgia and the Jungle Warfare School in Fort Sherman, Panama Canal Zone. In 1962, while stationed in the Panama Canal Zone, he was honored by the people of a small Panamanian town for helping them achieve their dream of a new school. The inauguration of the "Lieutenant David G. Hanrahan School.- Amistad -Panama -Estados Unidos" was attended by the President of Panama, the American Ambassador to Panama and the senior army staff.  After 5 years in the United States Army, attaining the rank of Captain, he attended Boston University Law School where he received his Juris Doctor Degree in 1966. Hanrahan, a distinguished trial attorney, is a member of the Boston and Massachusetts Bar Associations and is a fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers. He is a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society and for the last 15 years has sung lead in a barbershop quartet “Spindrift." Now, writing suspenseful and riveting courtroom novels occupies an important part of his life. John Murzycki has crafted messages for organizations ranging from international brands to technology startups. That is until he decided the time had finally come to pen a story he could call his own. After leaving a job as a high-tech marketing and sales manager, he concentrated on his true love of writing fiction. He published his debut novel, Elthea’s Realm in 2017 and Elthea’s Gambit in 2018. He writes about magical places that have roots in the technology of our world. His characters are unlikely heroes who struggle with frailties and imperfections as they face malevolent forces. Many of his plot ideas stem from the unintended consequences of technology. “What if…” was a thought that persisted and found its way into his writing. He is currently writing the next book in The Story of Elthea’s Realm series. ​John makes his home in Wrentham, Massachusetts. Visit johnmurzycki.com for more information.   Jade Webb is a lover of romance novels that feature strong heroines who know that the loves that may come into their lives are always the icing, and never the cake. Jade has loved romance novels since she was a teen, sneaking them into her Bible studies at her all-girls Catholic school. Thanks to her own marriage, she has learned that the challenges of life can only help to make love stronger and is grateful to her partner for embodying all the magic that love can offer. When Jade is not writing or dreaming up new love stories, she is working in a retirement community outside of Boston that provides her with enough writing material for ten lifetimes. Jade is a proud member of Romance Writers of Rhode Island and the New England Chapter of Romance Writers of America. Visit her website at jadewebb.com.  Richard Rook started writing in 2015, after spending forty years as a practicing attorney and about twenty years as a part-time consulting genealogist. His published short stories won several awards, but they were a tune-up for Tiernan's Wake and the series it will become. What other novel will you ever read that combines real-life pirates, genealogy, the immigrant experience, law, Elizabethan history and art, an actual Irish historical mystery, ancestral spirits, spies, Nazis, parochial school trauma, Sherlock Holmes, the complexities of adult friendships, and the true meaning of family? In 1964, an inspirational high school English teacher and his Pulitzer Prize winning novelist friend asked a class to promise that someday each of us would try to write a novel. It took him more than fifty years to start, but better late than never. Rook lives outside Boston, Massachusetts with his wife Dyan, an artist and documented direct descendant of a female pirate who appears in the novel. Being 73% Irish, Rook considers himself an Irish-American writer. Arlyn Hope Halpern is a psychotherapist in a private practice. She holds a Masters in Dance and previously was a dance instructor at Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado. She began the study of Buddhism under the tutelage of Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche in 1971. She resides outside of Boston with her husband. For more information about Arlyn and Dancing into the Light visit www.arlynhalpern.com.  Amy Bartelloni is a reader, writer, coffee addict, fangirl, eternal optimist, and self identified Ravenclaw. Name a geek fandom and she’s probably in it.  She loves books, both reading and writing them.  Some of her favorite authors include Neil Gaiman, Jasper Fforde, Paulo Coelho, and Stephen King.  Her writing tends to stay in the sci/fi or fantasy genre for now, but you never know what the future holds! For more information about Amy and her books visit www.amybartelloni.com.  Ashlyn Chase was a registered nurse for 20 years. During those years she wrote articles for professional journal and a thesis, but eventually, thank goodness, discovered the joy and freedom of writing fiction. Ashlyn considers herself lucky.  Her degree in behavioral sciences is a combination of psychology and sociology, so she has studies people most of her life. She doesn’t have to write out exhaustive character sketches to understand her characters or predict how they will behave. The doesn’t mean they don’t surprise her. Sometimes they take her on grand unexpected journeys. Her identified theme involves characters who reinvent themselves. For more information about Ashlyn and her books visit www.ashlynchase.com.  Sandi Montour is a lifelong adventurer, and her insatiable curiosity has been the driving force behind her explorations and discoveries. From a childhood spent building tree houses, riding her bicycle, and reading — and dreaming — about faraway, magical lands, to chasing the Northern Lights in Iceland, riding camels in Egypt and elephants in Thailand, trekking through the jungle in Costa Rica, and pursuing dozens of other excursions throughout the globe as an adult, her key goals in life have been to seek adventure and make a difference. Her book This or That? is a fun way to better know yourself and others. Enjoy it on a road trip, when hanging out with friends, at school or camp, as an office icebreaker, or even while waiting for an appointment. Visit her website at thisorthatbook.com.  Eddie Doherty fished the East End of the Cape Cod Canal so often that other fishermen started calling him East End Eddie. Thus, a nick name and pen name were born together. Doherty is a graduate of Dominican Academy and the University of South Florida. He worked for almost 37 years in the Massachusetts Court system where he became the youngest Assistant Clerk-Magistrate in the state at age 25 for the Attleboro District Court before being appointed 18 years later to the lifetime position of Clerk-Magistrate of the Wrentham District Court by His Excellency, A. Paul Cellucci, Governor of the Commonwealth. The author has fished the warm currents of the Gulf of Mexico as well as the powerful Atlantic surf pounding the rugged coast of Maine. He has surf cast along the striper coast all the way down to the clear tropical inlets of the Florida Keys. His cousins in Ireland took him from Ballyjamesduff to the River Shannon where he wet a line in the same water that had sustained his ancestors with fish during the potato famine long ago. He has been privileged to have fished Sakonnet with Charley Soares, Chappaquiddick with D.J. Muller and the Cape Cod Canal with Patrick Kearney. Doherty has been published in Cape Cod Magazine, On The Water, The Fisherman Magazine, Cape Cod Times, The Boston Globe, The Sun Chronicle, Coastal Angler Magazine and the Congressional Record. He fishes in the Stan Gibbs Cape Cod Canal Fisherman’s Classic every year and his striped bass entry won the shore division in his first Buzzards Bay Anglers Club Fall Derby. He lives close to the Cape Cod Canal in Mattapoisett with his wife Joanne. Bolivar Beato grew up in Rhode Island; Providence, Pawtucket and Central Falls when he decided to get into graphic design and write books. His series, Pangaea, is about a world being torn apart by magic, and an old evil is set to return. Its greatest champions are blinded by ambition, choked by politics, and crippled by pain. Brought together by fate, seven young heroes set out to save the world.

We have sold out in advance for all our previous shows.  Early bird prices are valid until Friday August 3rd.  Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 7.30 and runs until 9.30pm Join us and invite your friends for a great night of laughter and community with a very special group of people and an even more special cause.  *Please note this venue only holds 65 people. We will sell out very fast.  Show is 21's and up.  Comedians performing on the night: Conor Kellicutt wonders about the simple things in life. Why is his dog so happy? Why do we do the jobs we do? And what is that smell? Starting out in theater when he was 5, Conor graduated to Stand-up Comedy in San Francisco at 21 at the Legendary Holy City Zoo. Quickly becoming a regular at The Punch Line and Cobb’s Comedy Club, and taking second place in the Comedy Central Laugh Riot Semi Finals, Conor has focused on finding just the right words and putting them in just the right order to keep his audiences laughing! Recently featured in the Woody Allen film “Blue Jasmine,” Conor has toured the world and performed with Dave Chappelle, Jake Johannsen, Dave Attell, Tracy Morgan, Dana Carvey, Robin Williams, Patton Oswalt, Greg Giraldo, Ralphie May and a bunch of people you have never heard of but are still hilarious! Chris Riggins (Dave Chappelle’s Touring Opener). Chris has taken the art of stand up comedy and chose to stand out amongst a sea of other talented artists. From producing unique shows such as the Outdoor Comedy Club, opening for Dave Chappelle his first time on stage, to featuring and headlining at major clubs and colleges throughout the United States, the sky is truly the limit for Chris. While a unique take on growing up in the Bay Area and finding humor in the struggle are the centerpiece of Chris’ act, he is relatable to people from all walks of life. Shanti Charan is a Bay Area favorite and a regular at every local club including San Francisco Punch Line and Cobb’s. Charan was recently named San Francisco Bay Guardian’s “Best Comedian” in their Annual “Best of SF” edition. SF Weekly awarded Shanti “Best Stand Up on the Way Up”, stating Charan’s writing, “is clever and confident beyond her years”. Feel Woods is not ashamed to admit that he’s a stuttering comedian straight out the streets of Oakland, California. Perhaps the only one. His self deprecating stories and tales on growing up in inner city Oakland has earned him a spot as a ‘featured performer’ at SF Sketchfest, Comedy Central's Clusterfest and a regular spot at the historic 500 seat Great Star Theater in China Town. He’s also opened for legends like Paul Mooney at the Black Repertory Theater in Berkeley 3 times (he gives Paul weed in trade for stage time) also Hannibal Burress. Joey Avery: After starting his career in Cape Town, South Africa Joey Avery received the Jimmy Gunn award for Best Newcomer to the Bay Area comedy scene and was recently listed in SF Chronicle as one of the Bay Area Comic's to catch. He has appeared on Fox and AJ+ as well as in the San Francisco Sketchfest Comedy Festival and the San Diego Sun God Music and Arts Festival. He currently produces content for Chubbies Entertainment and is a regular guest on Uproxx's Film Drunk Frotcast. Joe Nguyen: Subtle but sharp, laid-back yet engaging, Joe Nguyen is the smart slacker beloved by audiences for his easygoing delivery and good writing. At home in all venues from clubs to cafes, Joe is a regular at the Punch Line and other Bay Area clubs as well as a member of local group Nightlife on Mars. Comedy for a Spinal Cause is a quarterly (kind of) event bringing together top comedians & local communities, raising funds and awareness to assist incredible individuals on their road to spinal cord injury recovery.

But, also come to The Summit in Banff to fully immerse yourself into the creative landscape photography process during the conference.  Come to Banff and live the passion uninterrupted for a weekend of photography presentations, editing presentations, and come to learn from some of the leading nature photographers in the industry.   When you register for the 3nd ILPA Landscape Photography Summit you’ll receive: A full Summit presentation pass Summit pass "A" or Summit Pass "B" holders will receive a seat on one of the two identical Banff National Park Landscape Photography Day tours occurring on either Friday or Sunday.  Space on these tours is limited to 28 people per tour so be sure to buy your ticket early to guarantee that you go on the Banff tour on your preferred day.  Which pass you purchase, “Summit Pass A” or “Summit Pass B,” will determine the day that you’ll go on the included Banff landscape photography day tour.  Presentation only passes to the Summit without a pass to one of the included day tours are available.   Full Summit Pass "A" and "B" will recieve a one year membership to the International Landscape Photographer’s Association with an “ILPA photographer” membership.  Your membership will start the day you purchase your Summit Pass and it will expiry on Dec. 31, 2019.  You may upgrade this membership to an ILPA Professional or Industry membership if you choose.  If you become an ILPA Professional Photographer you may share your appropriate outdoor photography events on the ILPA social media channels.  Visit the ILPA website at www.internationlandscapephotographers.com to read about what the differences are between the "ILPA Photographer" and "ILPA Pro Photographer" memberships levels.  As a new ILPA Member you may immediately start using your new ILPA membership to receive discounts on tours offered by ILPA Professional Photographers like the Lake O'Hara Fall Colours Tour, The Japan Photography Tour and The Cape Breton Island Fall Colour Tour.    There are two different full Summit passes with the Banff Tour available:      There are two types of full Summit passes available.  Summit pass "A" and Summit Pass "B".  Each pass includes exactly the the same presentation events and each pass includes a group day tour of Banff National Park.  The difference between the two passes is the day on which the Banff National Park landscape photography day tour occurs, either on Friday or Sunday.  All the conference presentations are the same for both passes.
