POTSDAM - The best selling regional author of Adirondack Treasure – The Bonaparte Legacy, Matthew J. Glavin, will be speaking and signing books at noon and again at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Potsdam Public Library.
One reviewer called Adirondack Treasure – The Bonaparte Legacy the North Countrys own DaVinci Code . . . its a novel you cant put down.
Glavin, will discuss how he blended the history of Joseph Bonaparte, former King of Spain and his time in the North Country, with fiction. The result is a compelling story about a legend that has been rumored in the Adirondack Mountains for more than 180 years.
The fictional Joseph Benton has a 200-year-old bible handed down from his famous ancestor Joseph Bonaparte, the former King of Spain and older brother to Napoleon. Inside the bible is a cipher that family legend says leads to a magnificent treasure stolen from the Spanish Royal Treasury when King Joseph fled Spain.
This exciting treasure hunt blends historical facts with a terrific story and complex characters creating tension pitting environmentalist vs. developer and friend vs. friend. The search involves riddles and ciphers and leads to murder, romance and intrigue that will keep you up at night wondering yourself . . . could the legend be true?
The Bonaparte Legacy is the first installment in the planned Adirondack Treasure trilogy. Adirondack Treasure – Isle Royale is due out in the fall of 2013.
Glavin will be speaking and signing books at the library on Wednesday, May 8th, at 12 Noon in the Tech Room and at 7 PM in the Community Room. The public is welcome. Please call the Library at 265-7230 for reservations.
