True Life Crime Author at Taylor

On Aug. 19, 1997, in the North Country community of Colebrook, five people died and several more were wounded during four separate shooting incidents over the course of that afternoon. It was a day of such dramatic event, involving so many people, that for months afterward, the town’s News and Sentinel newspaper – where two were murdered – received letters of condolence from all over the world.

Author Richard Adams Carey’s recently published book, “In the Evil Day,” recounts a tension-filled report of a small town’s terror, portrayed with surprising love, bitter sweetness and hope, resulting in a beautifully written and enthralling true-crime tale.

Carey will bring this story to life when he comes to Taylor Community’s Woodside Building, Monday, Oct. 5 at 6:30 p.m. for a reading and book-signing. The event is free and open to the public. Please call 524-5600 to reserve your seat.
