The Learned Owl will host back-to-back book signings featuring two local authors over the next two weekends.
Up first is Hudson author Sarabeth Caplin, who will return to the Learned Owl at 1 p.m. on Saturday. She visited the shop back in June with her memoir, Confessions of a Prodigal Daughter.
Caplin will sign copies of her latest book, Someone You Already Know at the store located at 204 N. Main Street.
It is described on the Learned Owl site as a "raw, emotional book that explores the impact of rape culture on modern society."
Caplin has lived in Hudson since she was 8 years old.
She has a degree from Kent State in English Literature, and is enrolled in the Denver Seminary in Littleton, Colorado, where she will study for the next four years to become a Protestant chaplain. It is her career goal to eventually work at a hospital or women's crisis center.
Following Caplin’s signing, Samuel Thomas will appear at 1 p.m. on Jan. 12 with his debut novel, The Midwife's Tale.
It is a historical mystery set in the England of 1644. Parliament's armies have risen against the King, and laid siege to the city of York. Meanwhile, midwife Bridget Hodgson faces her own crises, when she becomes embroiled in a murder investigation. A friend has been sentenced to die for killing her husband, but Bridget believes her to be innocent and conducts her own investigation to find the true murderer.
Samuel Thomas has a doctorate in history and holds a teaching position at a secondary school near Cleveland.
