In what promises to be the literary event of the holiday season, Smithtown novelist Jeb Ladouceur will conduct a book-signing at Smithtown’s handsome Whisper Vineyard on Saturday afternoon, Dec. 27. The free event is slated for 2:00 PM at the lovely, new, Edgewood Avenue location just west of Route 25-A.
Ladouceur will present his ninth and newest novel, “Harvest,” to the Whisper audience. His prepared remarks last 20 minutes, after which he will answer questions and chat with attendees.
An award-winning writer, Jeb Ladouceur is Smithtown’s favorite novelist, and his theater and book reviews appear in several major L.I. publications. “Harvest” involves an American doctor who is seized by a gang of sinister organ traffickers in The Balkans and ordered to perform illegal surgeries.
Jeb Ladouceur is recognized throughout Long Island for his career in advertising, public relations, and publishing. When one of the Whisper event planners inquired whether there is a particular venue where he’s dreamed of speaking but has not yet been invited, Ladouceur answered, “Yes!…and this is it! Ever since Barbara Perrotta, and Laura and Steve Gallagher opened their gorgeous facility on Edgewood Avenue, I’ve been hoping they’d ask me to speak at the popular Wine Boutique.”
The long-time Borella’s produce patron added, “The beautiful venue is literally around the corner from our home on Stony Hill Path, and I’m thrilled to be visiting as an author.”
