Young Adults

Author Talk ~ Twenty-One Heroes by Sam Forman
Wednesday, May 18th at 7:00pm

Forman Twenty-One Heroes_Cover-1Outspoken colonial teen Katherine supports the patriot cause with conviction, intelligence, and poise, inspiring the respect of many and the affections of two very different college students—Ezra and Joshua. While fighting, disease, unrest, and betrayal surround them, these young people suffer the additional pains of heartache and the longing for true love. Combining historical facts with modern sensibilities, Twenty-One Heroes is an engaging tale of adventure and romance.
Sam Forman is an historian, physician, and educator. Throughout careers as a physician, military officer, and businessman, he has published and lectured on historical topics that impact current issues. In addition to the young adult historical romance Twenty-One Heroes, he is the author of Dr. Joseph Warren: The Boston Tea Party, Bunker Hill, and the Birth of American Liberty (Pelican, 2012).

Teen browsers and researchers alike will like what they find — a collection of over 1,800 books: fiction, nonfiction, biographies, and ready-reference — college catalogs, guides, and information on financial aid — graphic novels and magazines — games, puzzles, study space, and a comfortable place to relax and visit with your friends.

Look for changing displays of new books, hot topics, and suggested “good reads”, both in print and on CD.
