The Warren County Public Library will host author/actor Paul Michael Glaser on Thursday, May 10 at 6:00 p.m.
Paul Michael Glaser is an American actor and director, perhaps best known for his role as Detective David Starsky on the 1970s television series Starsky and Hutch. Since then, he has appeared on many television shows and feature films. In 2009, with show business changing, and with the exception of the odd acting role or directing job, Paul found other creative outlets: photography and writing.
His first book, Chrystallia and the Source of Light, is about a fourteen year-old girl, (told in her voice) and her eleven year-old brother who are about to lose their mother and their house. It is their last Christmas together, and the two children find themselves on an unexpected journey underground in the world of crystals and minerals in search of the source of light. It is a tale of light, love, courage, forgiveness, discovering the truth of yourself, and finding your way home.
“Paul has distilled the knowledge and gentle understanding of old with the wonder and limitlessness of possibility of youth to give us the gift of his light,” states actress and New York Times Bestselling Author, Jamie Lee Curtis. “Magical and mesmerizing. A must read for a generation to share.”
Coming this year is a second book called Hook-Foot and Peg, A Cautionary Tale. The book chronicles the journey of a crippled but very proud crow, a tough one-legged sea gull, and a multi-lingual, overly amorous parrot. Like Chrystallia, it will appeal to all ages.
Paul is currently working on his third book, a story about an older man who spent his life as a detective in New York City, left the force under duress, and has been living in Paris for fourteen years waiting for the man who killed his partner and his girlfriend.
