Author’s Night Presents Cyndi Pauwels

The next Friends of the Greenville Public Library’s Author’s Night will feature author Cyndi Pauwels on Friday February 12th at 7:00 p.m. at Montage Cafe in downtown Greenville. Doors open at 6:00 so come early for dinner and to enjoy the live music provided by virtuosos R.J. Price and Bill Westfall.

Writing under C.L. Pauwels, Cyndi recently published an exciting debut novel titled 40 & OUT which will be available for purchase at Author’s Night as well at Deadly Writes Publishing, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon. “Someone is targeting Toledo’s single women when they turn forty, tucking them into bed and turning birthday greetings into obituaries. Newly-assigned Homicide Detective Veronica Jadzinski vows to prevent the body count from increasing and to prove her transfer from Narcotics wasn’t a fluke — departmental regulations, disparaging lieutenants, and a rigid new partner be damned.”

Cyndi is not new to writing! She holds an MA in creative writing from Antioch University McGregor in Yellow Springs and her short fiction has appeared in Mock Turtle ‘zine, Over My Dead Body!, The View from Here (UK), and other journals. In 2009, she published the award-winning non-fiction Historic Warren County: An Illustrated History. Sugati Publications has selected two of her essays for their Reflections from Women anthology series, and Sinclair Community College’s literary journal Flights has published several of her pieces over the past few years.

In addition to writing, Cyndi’s portfolio career includes book editing (The Enduring Legacy of Kahlil Gibran and The Essential Rihani), teaching freshman composition as an adjunct at Clark State Community College, and serving as assistant director for the Antioch Writers’ Workshop. She lives in Yellow Springs with her husband of thirty-seven years, three spoiled dogs, and six chickens. See http://clpauwels.com for more info.

Our Author’s Nights are a unique event for the area. Be sure to join us for another stimulating, fun evening - and a chance to enjoy Cyndi’s sense of humor and to ask her how she came to know about detective work! Her answer may surprise you.

Two other events of interest involve two of our Greenville Poets whom we always feature in April. Poet Cathy Essinger will be giving a reading at the Hayner Cultural Center in Troy on February 25th at 7:30 p.m. and poet Lianne Spidel and artist Ann Loveland will be there on March 24th with Ann’s original art and Lianne’s matching poems from their book Pairings.
