Local Author Dana Kirk releases her new book

Dana Kirk released her new book 'The Pirates Lair' in the Kirk Room at the Brownsville Community Library Saturday, June 27, 2015

 Dana Kirk, author of 'The Pirate's Lair' signed copies of her new book in the Kirk Room at the Brownsville Community Library on Saturday, June 27, 2015. What she has to say about the book:  At 17, I know what's out there. I have seen evil and I have beaten it. Whatever life throws at me, I'm gonna survive it and I'm gonna come out stronger. Not everyone is like that, though; not everyone needs to be. Somewhere in this world there are people who go to bed with full stomachs. People with loved ones who kiss them goodnight. People who will fall in love, get married, and live happily. Somewhere, there are people in this world that are not evil or vicious or petty. Not here, but somewhere. So there's my big secret: I believe in fairytales. If you tell anyone, I'll run you up the main mast and use you for a flag.”
