Fred deVecca Presents THE NUTTING GIRL Wed., Sept. 20 at 7 pm


Fred DeVecca

The protagonist of The Nutting Girl is Frank Raven, who at different points in a past life has been a cop and a private detective. Now he runs the local movie house in small New England Village and dances with a local troupe of Morris Dancers. When a film crew comes to town, Frank is asked to brush off the skills of his former life and act as security for the film's star, the beautiful and tempestuous Velcro, who turns out to have depth Frank hadn't suspected.  But during filming, a seeming accident causes Velcro to disappear without a trace.  Accident.....really?

"The Nutting Girl is an absorbing and offbeat mystery with a deep emotional core. Frank Raven is a soulful, full-bodied character in search of a sense of place and a sense of purpose. A delightful book." --Emily Arsenault, author of What Strange Creatures and The Broken Teaglass
