Meet an Epsom Author.  On Wednesday, November 9 at 7:00 PM, the Epsom Library will be hosting Mr. Everett A. Wentworth as he talks about his recently published book, “The Storyteller”.   It is a “story set in the 1900’s about a con man with a gift for storytelling and who’s listeners will live to regret it.”    Having always enjoyed poetry, Mr. Wentworth said, ”At the tender age of eighty-five I decided to write a poem.  I liked the character so much, it turned into seventeen chapters of verse.”  His book will be available for purchase.

“Chasing the Rabbit: A Dad’s Life Raising a Son on the Spectrum”

Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 5:30pm at the Suncook Senior Center

To significant international acclaim, Maine businessman Derek Volk has released his poignant memoir Chasing the Rabbit: A Dad’s Life Raising a Son on the Spectrum. Co-written with his twenty-four-year-old son Dylan, who has Asperger’s syndrome, the book highlights the Volk family’s significant challenges and heartfelt triumphs as well as the various coping strategies they have employed throughout Dylan’s life.


The book details the Volk family’s frustration before Dylan’s diagnosis at age eight. It also offers an honest account of the experiences raising a son with Asperger’s, a developmental disorder that most notably affects the ability to socialize with others. Stories in Chasing the Rabbit range from Dylan’s early days to the specific behavioral challenges of his adolescent years to life in the “real world” as he transitioned to a young adult with the dream of pursuing a career in comedy. Throughout the book, readers are treated to “Dylan’s Take,” which offers Dylan’s perspective.


The Suncook Senior Center will host Derek and Dylan Volk for a free community presentation at 5:30 pm on November 15, 2016.  The Volk’s engaging story is described by The Pine Tree Society as “phenomenal,” “inspirational,” and “amazing.”  Their connection to their audiences is immediate and personal.


The Suncook Senior Center is operated by Elder Services, Community Action Program Belknap-Merrimack Counties, Inc. The mission of the Elder Services department is to promote, through our multi-purpose senior centers, the physical, emotional, and economic well-being of older adults and to stimulate participation in all aspects of community life.  People of all ages are invited to attend; light refreshments will be provided.   The Center is located at 8 Whitten Street, Allenstown, NH. For more information, please call (603) 485-4254 or email Leslie at [email protected].  Chasing the Rabbit: A Dad’s Life Raising a Son on the Spectrum  will be available for purchase.
