Community Room

Christine Petosa and Elizabeth Williams, authors of Jim’s Flight: One Soul’s Perspective from Heaven, will hold a Q&A and book signing session.

Is there life after death? Does Heaven really exist? Providing us with insight, wisdom and practical knowledge, we learn from Jim Petosa’s flight to Heaven and back that life exists beyond the physical world. This book is a compilation of the journey of Jim’s transition to Heaven, his wife’s experience as the caretaker and the portal to expand humanity’s understanding of it all. Riveting moments capture the reader, open the hearts of many and, truth be told, enlighten all of us to believe that the soul lives on forever.

Solvay Public Library will be CLOSED at 5:00 P.M. on Wednesday, November 23rd and CLOSED on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 24th and that Friday, November 25th. We hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!
