Chevy Stevens, author of ‘Thrillers’, visits Kingston | Check It Out

Although Spring is coming, we have plenty of those rainy days left, which are perfect for watching a film, listening to a story or music, and reading a thrilling book. At the library in addition to books, we have magazines, music and movies you can check out. If you want to learn to download a book, a magazine, or a song from our catalog, please make an appointment with us.

We also have a special author visit in March and invite you to meet New York Times Bestselling author Chevy Stevens at your library. This Canadian writer of thrillers will talk about her newest novel, “Never Let You Go.” It comes out March 14, and has been described as utterly absorbing, engrossing, and suspenseful.
