Author P.W. Catanese offers support to library ‘Muggles’

Marlborough – Author P.W. (Paul) Catanese had dinner and a discussion with The Muggle Support Group April 11. Children's Librarian Necia Blundy and her book group, which consists of Asaaju Wesley, Mendel Weisenberg, Katie Hodge, Catherine Duross, Cassandra Arsenault, Alison Chalmers, Robin Kerr, Natalie Reed, Nathan Staley and Colleen McCarthy, invited the writer to talk about his experiences. Catanese explained how he became a writer, including the inspiration for his first book, “The Thief and the Beanstalk,” which is a continuation of the fairytale, “Jack and the Beanstalk.” He gave the kids editing and writing tips, including how he takes paragraphs and tries to get rid of unnecessary words, and how he tries to write visual and exciting descriptions. He also shared two different openings for one of his books and answered questions from the audience. At the end, Catanese signed copies of “The Books of Umber Trilogy,” which includes, “Happenstance Found,” “Dragon Games” and his newest book, released in February, “The End of Time.”
