STEVENSVILLE — On Monday, Oct. 2, at 6 p.m., the Kent Island Branch of Queen Anne’s County Library welcomes Leigh Goff, author of two books for teens.

Goff will read from her new young adult book “Bewitching Hannah,” which is set in Annapolis, followed by a discussion about the writing process and publishing. She will be selling and signing both of her young adult novels, “Disenchanted” and “Bewitching Hannah.”

Goff’s writing is inspired by classic tales and star-crossed fates. In her new book, an ancient prophecy reveals the rise of a young, powerful witch and the impending death of another. Sixteen-year-old Hannah Fitzgerald realizes she can no longer afford to suppress the magic that has taken away so much. She seeks out the frighteningly scarred, yet mysterious W, who is destined to change her life, but even he cannot prepare her for the danger that surrounds her in the historic town of Annapolis.

Goff’s debut novel “Disenchanted” is a fantasy inspired by the Wethersfield witches of 17th century Connecticut.

“Fun fact — I recently learned that I am the eighth great-granddaughter of accused Chesapeake witch, Elizabeth Duncan of Virginia, who went to trial in 1695 for bewitching livestock and causing birds to fall from the sky,” said Goff.

The event is free of charge and suggested for teens and adults. No advance registration is required.
