Gray Basnight, Author Talk and Book Signing

Saturday, April 13th 11:00 AM

An innocent math professor tries to decode a mystery file that lands in his in-box while a team of hit-men chase him from the Catskill Mountains to NYC and down the East Coast.

The Mysterious Book Review writes “An electrifying, propulsive and timely thriller . . . should shoot to the top of every bestseller list in the country. . . a tour de force of a government agency that is so out of control it will do anything to protect itself . . .It’s a story that could have been ripped right out of . . . the headlines.

He employs former military types with unique skills to carry out different assignments for large sums of cash.

He is the face of the private military contractor, otherwise known as a mercenary, or Twilight Soldier. Gordon is half-Colombian, part German, from the country of Colombia, who joined the army after 9/11. He is very patriotic but due to his need for money and the luxuries he desires, he becomes an agent of lethal consequences. One of those consequential engagements is the removal of a notorious, left-wing billionaire named Gregory Stavros

Movie: Green Book

Thursday, April 25th 6:00 PM

In 1962, Tony “Tony Lip” Vallelonga, a tough bouncer, is looking for work when his nightclub is closed for renovations. The most promising offer turns out to be the driver for the African-American classical pianist Don Shirley for a concert tour into the Deep South states. Although hardly enthused at working for a black man, Tony accepts the job and they begin their trek armed with The Negro Motorist Green Book, a travel guide for safe travel through America’s racial segregation. Together, the snobbishly erudite pianist and the crudely practical bouncer can barely get along with their clashing attitudes to life and ideals. However, as the disparate pair witness and endure America’s appalling injustices on the road, they find a newfound respect for each other’s talents and start to face them together. In doing so, they would nurture a friendship and understanding that would change both their lives.
