Six@Six group to hear authors

WESTFIELD – Six@Six, a group of six authors of fiction and non-fiction including memoirs and historical topics, will present a brief discussion and signing of their work in an informal setting on Monday, June 10 at the Sugar Shack Gift Shop on Route 5 in the town of Westfield.

This first time event, hosted by Westfield businesswoman Gail Black, presents authors local to the Chautauqua region. Her own memoir, “Asses and Angels” spans several years of spousal and familial abuse, culminating in personal achievement and love. Her soul-baring stories of grit and guts have won her accolades from readers in the US and abroad.

Among the authors presenting their work are George Clever (“Dancing With Grandfather”), Kathleen Crocker and Jane Currie (“Legendary Locals: The Chautauqua Lake Region”), Mary Dolce (“How To Cook For A Man When You Want To Be Dessert”) Dick Galloway (“The Medal”), Yvonne Park (“Murder For Hire: My Brother’s Story”) and Chuck Spinner (“The Tragedy at the Loomis Street Crossing”).

Black, who owns the Sugar Shack, aspires to offer a series of author talks and signings throughout the summer as Westfield continues to expand its artistic and cultural image, attracting visitors from around the world.

Six@Six will take place on Monday, June 10 at 6 p.m., 7904 Route 5 in Westfield, one mile east of exit 60 on the New York State Thruway. For more information, call 326-3351. Space is limited; reservations suggested. Free and open to the public.
