Special to the Express
On Saturday, Nov. 27, local author Harry Steven Ackley will hold a book signing at the Berryessa Gap Tasting Room in downtown Winters to celebrate the release of his third novel, The Saint of El Camino Real. The signing will begin at 3 p.m. and continue until 5 p.m. There will be a limited number of books for sale.
Ackley, who goes by his middle name Steve, is a graduate of Woodland High School, Cabrillo College, Bethany Bible College and San Francisco State University, where he received a master’s degree in education. After working a short time as a high school English teacher, Ackley transitioned to his present career in communications. Ackley currently resides in Winters.
The Saint of El Camino Real is the sequel to Ackley’s first two novels, Our Lady of West 74th Street and The Prophet of Shattuck Avenue. It is the final book in his trilogy about Archangels.
The Saint of El Camino Real focuses on the character of Heather Campbell as she begins the fall semester of her third year of college. Moving from Poughkeepsie, New York and transferring to Santa Clara University in California was supposed to mark a new start for Heather, away from her mother and the strange religious experiences of her past. However, as Heather quickly discovers, the things of the spiritual realm have little regard for time or geography.
