Chester County author Bruce Mowday’s
four live event holiday schedule
Can’t attend, Mowday will provide signed copies of books for holiday gifts
WEST CHESTER _ A live arts event at The General Warren on November 19 with artist Adrian Martinez highlights Chester County author Bruce Mowday’s upcoming holiday book signings and talks.
“The restrictions necessitated by COVID has caused most of my events in 2020 to be cancelled. I’m pleased that four live appearances – all socially distanced – have been scheduled for the holiday season. So many members of the public are looking for safe ways to interact with each other during the holiday season. I’m pleased that I can participate in four such events,” said West Chester author Bruce Mowday.
The General Warren, 9 Old Lancaster Road, Malvern, is hosting Mowday and artist Adrian Martinez for a holiday event on Thursday, November 19 from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Those attending will be able to talk with Martinez and Mowday and enjoy refreshments in the restaurant’s fine bar and restaurant. Books and paintings will be offered for sale.
“For years my signed books have made popular holiday gifts,” Mowday said. “For those who can’t attend one my events, they can contact me at email@example.com to arrange the purchase of a copy. All of my books are listed on www.mowday.com.”
Two of Mowday’s latest books are the true-crime Stealing Wyeth and Emotional Gettysburg, a unique look at Gettysburg with artist Karl J. Kuerner. Mowday, a former award-winning journalist, has authored more than 20 books. Stealing Wyeth tells the story of the theft of 15 paintings, including seven by famed artist Andrew Wyeth and six more by his son renowned artist Jamie Wyeth, from the Andrew Wyeth estate. The paintings were transported out-of-state and hidden in the ground and in the back of old cars to avoid being discovered. Kuerner, the only painter taught by Andrew and Carolyn Wyeth, painted original works for the Gettysburg book and Mowday supplied the essays. “This is a unique book on Gettysburg,” Mowday said. “The historical and emotional aspects of Gettysburg are tied to Gettysburg today.”
Mowday will appear at East Brandywine’s holiday event on Saturday, December 5 at Bondsville Mill Park, 1647 Bondsville Road, Downingtown, from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. On Thursday, December 10, Mowday will give a talk on his three Gettysburg books before the Ocean County New Jersey Civil War Round Table at 7:00 p.m. The venue is being finalized. On Thursday, December 17, Mowday will give a talk on Stealing Wyeth at Timothy’s. 929 South High Street, West Chester, for the WE-Go Rotary Club at 6:00 p.m.
Mowday will give two Zoom presentations. One for the Downingtown Library at 7:00 p.m. on November 5 and the other one on his Gettysburg books to the Montgomery County, Maryland, Civil War Round Table at 7:00 p.m.
