Happy book-day to Damselfy Inn!

Damselfly Inn Bannerwing Books has much to celebrate. Our editor-in-chief, Cameron D. Garriepy, celebrates a birthday today, and Bannerwing Books is thrilled to welcome Damselfly Inn into our catalog on this special day!

Damselfly Inn is the first novel in Garriepy’s Thornton Vermont series, and you are going to adore the town — and the cast of characters coming and going through the Damselfly Inn — from the moment you begin reading.

You may recognize Thornton Vermont from Garriepy’s From the Earth to the Moon or from Foolish Things, two short works of fiction set in the charming town.

Visit Cameron D. Garriepy for more information about Damselfly Inn — like where Garriepy will be holding live reading events or how you can purchase a signed copy of the novel.

Happy birthday, Cameron, and happy book-day, Damselfly Inn! The Bannerwing Books virtual office is abuzz with happiness today, and we know readers will be thrilled with your words.
