Local author F. Mark Granato, whose novel Finding David was nominated for a 2014 Pulitzer Prize for literature, will read at the MCC bookstore Thursday, April 24, 2014, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Granato’s long career as a writer, journalist and communications executive in a Fortune 50 Corporation earned him extensive international experiences on virtually every continent. He is now pursuing a life-long ambition to write fiction and especially to explore the “What if?” questions of history.

Granato’s books cover a colorful milieu of topic from the sinking of the Titanic to the Vietnam War. While at the bookstore, he will be available for discussions of his novels, the craft of fiction writing and the growing industry of self-publishing.

Finding David is a gripping story of love and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in Vietnam-era America. Granato’s other work includes the novels Of Winds and Rage, a work of historical fiction based on the Great 1938 New England Hurricane; Beneath His Wings: The Plot to Murder Lindbergh;  and Titanic: The Final Voyage. His most recent novel, The Barn Find,  is the touching yet raw saga of three generations of a once loving New England family that has survived countless crises — only to be torn apart by tragedy that captures the eyes of the world.
