BookBeat: Roger Noyes Moves from the Stage to the Page
If you’re a Greater Nippertown music fan, chances are good that you’re familiar with guitarist Roger Noyes, who plays in such bands as the Arch Stanton Quartet and the Jazz Caravan.
Well, Noyes is also an author, and he’s celebrating the publication of his first book, “Clara D. Noyes, R.N.: Life of a Global Nursing Leader” (Northshire Press), a biography of an important nursing leader in the early twentieth century who helped prepare and enroll 20,000 American Red Cross nurses for service to sick and dying American soldiers during World War I. Clara D. Noyes was also the author’s great-great aunt.
The publication party, reading and book-signing will take place from 7-9pm on Saturday (May 13) at Restaurant Navona in Albany. The book is also now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other outlets.
