Wally Wiggins -- Book Signing
Day: Saturday, June 12
Time: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Place: Cornell Campus Store
Wally Wiggins, a practicing attorney specializing in litigation for many years in Ithaca, adds "Author" to his diverse talents, bringing forth his novel, "Willow Run," and taking part in the traditional Cornell Reunions Weekend Alumni Author Book Signing at the Cornell Campus Store, Saturday, June 12, 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM.
Ithaca and Cornell are the focal points of this collection of engaging short stories. Much of the texture and fabric of Willow Run has been drawn from his courtroom experiences and the joy and heartache that follow every verdict. The founder of Divi Resorts, Wiggins lives up to his reputation for creativity with Willow Run.
In the character of trial lawyer Michael O'Leary, he takes us from his first criminal trial and ends with a tale which puts Solomon's wisdom to the test. In between we encounter the ecstasy of young love, the havoc created by mid-life passion and the agony of love lost.
Born Walter Reedy, a respectable Irish name, Mr. Wiggins took the surname of his adoptive parents at an early age. He grew up in Glenwood Landing, a small residential community on Long Island's north shore, attended Union College and the University of Lausanne in Switzerland. After a tour of combat duty in the South Pacific with the Marine Corps, he earned his law degree at Cornell University.
Wiggins lives with his wife, Joyce, on the west shore of Cayuga Lake with a commanding view of Cornell and the towers of Ithaca College.
Willow Run, which retails for $23.95, is published in hardcover by Gamma Books and will be available at bookstores, from internet booksellers and www.wallywiggins.com, or by calling 800-941-0460.
