Authors and Artists: Heidi Daniele: Saturday, September 21st at 3:30pm

Heidi Daniele’s passion for history and genealogy opened the door for her debut novel, The House Children. Based on actual events, The House Children is a compelling story of familial love, shameful secrets, and life inside Ireland’s infamous industrial schools.


A resident of the Hudson Valley, Daniele enjoys gardening, photography, and exploring her family tree. She has a degree in Communications and Media Arts and has worked on several short independent films. She earned the Learning in Progress Award for Excellence at a Dutchess Community College Film Festival for co-producing, writing, filming and editing, “Final Decisions.”

Sponsored by the Friends of the Chatham Public Library, the Authors and Artists series brings fascinating speakers to the library on a regular basis. This free event is open to the public and will be followed by a question and answer session, and a book sale and signing.
