You never know who’s going to show up at one of our book clubs! Author Mary Hogan was kind enough to crash our Senior Center Book Club this week to chat about her historical fiction novel, The Woman in the Photo. Hogan answered questions from the group and explained why the Johnstown Flood needs a better name (like the Johnstown Deluge or the Johnstown Cataclysm!)

She also talked about her love for Clara Barton and how much research goes into writing historical fiction.

Then, she explained how she accidentally got her start as a YA novelist and joked about her obsession with murder shows during the pandemic. (Relatable.)
