Book signing by Christopher Fahy, of his new release Gone From the Game, also The Christmas Star, at the Beyond the Sea Book Festival at Lincolnville Beach, Friday, July 25th, from 1:00 – 3:00.
About Gone From the Game: The year is 1928, and the Philadelphia Athletics are on the verge of supplanting the New York Yankees as the greatest baseball team the sport has ever known. How much easier their job would be if something catastrophic should befall the Yank's star player, Babe Ruth. Which it will, if Ruth's former minor league roommate and nemesis, embittered, shell-shocked World War I veteran Nick Hudson—who sometimes hears voices and sees things that don't exist—can execute his warped and devious plan.
About The Christmas Star: The Christmas Star is Christopher Fahy's heartwarming holiday story about a man in a unique position to discover what life is truly about. Wealthy developer Russell Dodge is rescued from an accident by a family that doesn't have much, but indeed has everything. A tale of hope, love and humanity illustrated with twelve full-page original illustrations by artist Cortney Skinner.
