September 19th “Meet the Author” Richard VanDeWaghe

We’ll greet the author of “Jimmy Quinn” at 4:00 on September 19th for a book signing and to answer any questions you might have about the setting of this novel, The Traverse City State Hospital. Many stories have been told about this famous landmark and Richard’s book reveals more history, as well as events that, well…..’might’ have happened. Set in the 1950’s, this state mental hospital is increasingly threatened by a mysterious collusion of local antipathy and state politics. What arises is chronic vandalism which soon escalates to  physical assaults and more.  Henry, a psychological intern, and Jimmy Quinn, a patient, begin to question and seek answers to the forces behind all that is the ‘Old Central’ State Hospital.
