Chevy Stevens, author of Thrillers, Visits Kingston | Check It Out

Although spring is coming, we will have plenty of rainy days which are perfect for watching a film, listening to a story or music, and reading a thrilling book or magazine.

At the library, in addition to books, we have magazines, music, and movies you can check out. If you want to learn how to download a book, magazine, or even a song from our catalog, please make an appointment with us.

We invite you to meet New York Times bestselling author Chevy Stevens on March 25 at your library. This Canadian writer of thrillers will talk about her newest novel, “Never Let You Go.” It comes out on March 14 and has been described as utterly absorbing, engrossing and suspenseful.
