Local author to sign books at library today

Published 2:01pm Thursday, March 14, 2013

I Talk Slower Than I Think is a book by Camp Hill resident C.D. Bonner, who will hold a reading and signing at the Dadeville Public Library today at noon.

“They are true stories – the younger crowd can think, ‘I wish I could do that’ and the older crowd is going to chuckle and say, ‘I remember doing that,’” Bonner said.

Bonner published his book of 52 short stories about friends and family members in August of 2012. He said it took two months to write but another three to four months to edit and format.

“It was easy to write – I lived most of it,” Bonner said. “I had to call a couple relatives to verify details.”

The signing will be held in the lower level of the library, and library director Abbigale Mangarelli said they hope people will come out and reap the benefits of meeting a local author.

“It’s pretty unique and interesting to hear their side of life and how they come about writing books,” Mangarelli said. “I think its great for the community to come out and experience that.”

Bonner said he has received a lot of positive feedback on his stories. He said he plans to read four or five stories today.

Books will be available for purchase for $15, a portion of which Bonner said he will donate to the library.
