Milford author William McGee will be visiting Milford Library, 57 New Haven Ave., on October 10 at 7pm. He will be reading from his new novel, Half the Child.
The novel tackles the rarely explored and volatile issues of child abduction and parental alienation – when one parent attempts to turn a child against the other parent. The story unfolds over four consecutive summers in the lives of Michael Mullen, a LaGuardia air traffic controller, and his son Benjamin. The novel chronicles the separation, divorce, custody battle – and heart-wrenching abduction – that threaten to tear apart father and son. Through it all, Mike steadfastly refuses to consider a life where he’d live apart from Ben. Ultimately, father and son write their own love story.
Copies of the book will be available for sale. The cost is $15.95. Cash, check, credit cards are accepted.
