Jim Reiley will be at the Northfield Public Library on Thursday, May 3rd at 7:00 p.m. and will talk about his new book.
It’s not often you run across a person like Jim Reiley. For this 92-year-old Northfield man, age is more than a way to count passing years. Ninety-two is the number of minutes he swims at the local senior center each day. It is the approximate amount of time he spends writing most days. And if you subtract the two from the nine, it is the number of books he has written over the past seven years including his most recent novel, City Hall: A Casino or a Chapel.
City Hall is not the recollections of a man who has lived through nine decades of history, nor lessons from a former history and political science teacher at the University of New Mexico – Los Alamos. A stray in genre from the majority of his books, this fast-paced, modern-day novel is the story of two former All-American college football stars making their way in the cutting edge corporate industry of liquefied natural gas.
