With vastly different personal backgrounds and subject 
matter, the two debut authors at Novel Destination’s next 
meet-the-author event will have a broad appeal.

On Saturday afternoon, October 26, Novel Destination~Used Book Emporium 
will host young adult writer Jessie Andersen and political thriller 
author John Persinger.

From 2-4 p.m. the authors will talk with readers and sign their books 
at 177 Fluvanna Avenue in Jamestown. They will bring copies of their 
books to sell and autograph.

A graduate of Frewsburg Central School now living in Sinclairville, 
Jessie Andersen is the author of At What Cost, an award winning 
finalist in the USA Book News Youth Issues category. Originally 
published as an e-book and now in hard copy, the book focuses on the 
issue of teen pregnancy and abortion. Andersen decided she wanted to 
write this story when she was teaching teenagers in Rochester and Panama 
and learned how sexually active they are.

At What Cost follows the fictional story of a high school junior who 
expected to be shopping for prom dresses and not maternity clothes. Her 
mother lives in fear of her daughter doing something to taint the family 
name, and her father is oblivious to anything but his 9 to 9 job. To do 
research on women who have had similar experiences, Andersen teamed up 
with Sharon Hamilton, the director of Women Services of Jamestown. For

Former White House staffer John M. Persinger is now a practicing 
attorney in Erie, Pennsylvania. The Erie Times-News described his 
first book, The Saint Joseph Plot, as “fascinating.” Persinger drew 
from his experiences working on a presidential campaign, in the West 
Wing of the White House, and at the U.S. Embassy in Canberra, Australia, 
to write the explosive political thriller.

An American history major at Harvard, Persinger wrote professionally, 
drafting speeches for two of his former bosses: the White House Counsel 
and the U.S. Ambassador to Australia. But he never thought about writing 
a novel until he attended Notre Dame Law School.

The Saint Joseph Plot details the final days of an election after a 
Notre Dame priest is accused of assaulting a congressman’s daughter.  At 
its heart, the story is about faith, family, and how far you would go 
for a loved one. More information on Persinger and The Saint Joseph 
Plot can be found at www.johnmpersinger.com.
