Sinclairville Free Library author talk

The Sinclairville Free Library announces that author Karen Wielinski will present a book talk at the library on Thursday, May 30 at 6 p.m. Wielinski will discuss her book “One on the Ground: The Story of One Family Before, During, and After Continental Flight 3407 Crashed into Their Home,” which was published by Librastream in 2017. Feb. 12, 2009 was an ordinary evening at home for the Wielinski family of Clarence Center, New York. Karen said good night to her husband Doug as he left their family room. Minutes later her world and her home came tumbling down around her. This compelling memoir is the story of life before, during, and after an unthinkable tragedy.

The Sinclairville Free Library is located at 15 Main St. in Sinclairville. This program is free and open to the public. Additional information about this and other library programs is available on the library’s website at www.sinclairvillelibrary.org or by calling 962-5885.
