Author and TV Personality John Searles to Speak at Easton Public Library

Best-selling author John Searles will give a talk at the Easton Public Library next Wednesday, October 2 to discuss his latest novel, "Help for the Haunted".

Searles new book is described as being "an expertly-wrought, coming-of-age story with a healthy dose of creepiness." The plot centers around Sylvie Mason, whose demonologist parents are murdered in a church basement one snowy night after a mysterious phone call that brings them to the site. The tale offers "chills and family secrets that heighten the tension with each turn of the page."

Searles is the author of the best-selling novels "Boy Still Missing" and "Strange but True". He appears frequently on morning shows such as NBC’s Today, CBS’s The Early Show, and CNN to discuss favorite book selections. Searles is also editor-at-large for Cosmopolitan Magazine and can be heard on Sirius/XM’s Cosmo Radio. His essays have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Daily Beast, and other national media.

First edition hardcover copies of "Help for the Haunted" are available for purchase at the main and Palmer branches of the Easton Public Library, as well as at the book talk, for $18. Searles will sign books at the conclusion of the talk too.

The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

The event will be held in the Catherine Drake Room at the Main Library located at 515 Church St. The room is handicapped-accessible from the lower level entrance. Doors open at 6 p.m.
