Local Authors Featured At CNY Arts Event

FULTON, NY – Two local authors will be featured guests at the December edition of CNY Arts Center’s “Author Spotlight,” to be held on December 12 at 7 p.m. at the center.

The authors, Craig Abbott and Joe Abbate, both from Fulton, have collaborated in writing Craig’s autobiography entitled: “Classified Terminally Ill: A Young Man’s Story of Beating the Odds.”

“Classified” is the uplifting and inspirational story of Craig’s life from shortly after birth, where his family was told that he would not live past the age of 2, until today, where he just celebrated his 23rd birthday.

It is a powerful story of hope, faith, determination and humor in the face of overwhelming adversity.

The event will commence with interviews of the authors and the reading of several passages from the book.

A question and answer period will follow that.

Afterwards, those in attendance will have a chance to meet the authors during a book signing time.

A preview of the book, which they label a “preography” will be available for purchase for anyone who chooses.

Refreshments will also be on hand.

There is no cost to attend – this is a free event sponsored by the CNY Arts Center, located at 357 State St.
