NJ Tales-March 12 author talk with Gordon Thomas Ward

March 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Please join us on Tuesday, March 12 from noon to 1 p.m., in the Level 2 Reading Room for an author program with historian, singer, songwriter Gordon Thomas Ward entitled New Jersey Tales.

This performance, which includes stories, projected images, and live music, contains some of the very best songs, stories, and ghostly tales that this Grammy-balloted musician, New Jersey troubadour, popular author, celebrated storyteller, and ghost researcher has to offer.

Gordon paints musical portraits that reach out to a person’s emotions and bring the past to life while pointing to a hope-filled future. His listeners are given passports to travel mystical and historical roads. Employing his experience as a teacher, writer, paranormal investigator, storyteller, group facilitator, and radio host, his fans often comment on his knack for quickly establishing a rapport with his audiences through his words and music.

When he’s not composing songs and penning lyrics, Gordon has written prose and is the author of four published books: Life on the Shoulder, A Bit of Earth, Ghosts of Central Jersey, and Tracing Infinity. He writes a regular column for The Black River Journal magazine and hosts a podcast called An Artist’s View. He also lectures on several topics and has presented at historical societies, coffeehouses and libraries as well as for community groups and on stages. He has worked with many musicians including Eric Troyer, The Boxcar Lilies, the trio Huxtable, Christensen, and Hood, as well as David Rimelis, and Dave Shapiro.
