SOUTH ORANGE / MAPLEWOOD, NJ — South Orange author Melanie Conklin addressed an audience of more than 30 individuals at Words Bookstore in Maplewood on April 21. She discussed her debut novel, “Counting Thyme,” and signed copies of the books for her new fans. Approximately half the audience was composed of children, who asked illuminating questions about Conklin’s inspiration for her novel and her writing process.
Words owner Jonah Zimiles was enthused to have Conklin at his store, saying it was a pleasure to be able to feature both a local author and a worthwhile author.
