Hoboken author to read on Thursday night

HOBOKEN — Hoboken author John McCaffrey will read from his new novel, The Book of Ash. He will also autograph copies of the book, which critics say is ‘smart and entertaining,’ ‘darkly funny,’ a ‘farcical twist on Orwell’s 1984.’ The reading takes place Dec. 12, 7 p.m., Hoboken Symposia Bookstore, 510 Washington St. See thebookofash.com for more.
