in Manasquan on Friday, Sept. 14, will be hosting author Paul H. Magid, who will discuss his debut novel, Lifting the Wheel of Karma, organizers said.
Magid plans to visit 500 book stores to spread the word of Karma, organizers said.
He'll appear from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Here's a brief synopsis of the novel, according to the author's official website:
"Joseph Connell is a gifted high school athlete, loved deeply by his family, yet tormented by nightmarish visions he can neither explain nor escape.
After a horrific accident forever alters the course of his life, he travels to the remote Himalayas of India, in search of a mystical old wise man alleged to possess supernatural healing power.
The man he seeks, however, will not so easily reveal what he truly knows, for he alone knows Joseph’s true destiny … and that the secret he is searching for resides within the heart of each and every one of us."
The following weekend, on Saturday, Sept. 22, children's author Moina Michael, known as "The Poppy Lady," will be at the store to promote awareness of Vetern's Day and the meaning of the poppy flower, organizers said.
Her launch party will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., organizers said.
Poppy flowers will be given out, organizers said.
