Lowell, MA (May 14, 2019) – Residents of Peabody Properties’ Rogers Hall in Lowell hosted a Meet and Greet with author John Desmond, who recently published his first book, a historical fiction novel titled, The Black Thorn. Mr. Desmond spoke to the residents about his novel, signed copies, and held a Q&A. It was an absolutely wonderful event, made even better by the fact that Mr. Desmond’s mother, Gloria Desmond, is a Rogers Hall resident. Pictured here are Mary Coffey, John Desmond, and Gloria Desmond.
