SARANAC LAKE -Matthew Glavin, author of "Adirondack Treasure: The Bonaparte Legacy," will host a book signing from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26 at Kinney Drugs, 277 Broadway, Saranac Lake.
On Sunday, Oct. 28 at 1:30 p.m., Glavin will present a book signing at Saranac Village at Will Rogers.
The story begins with a man named Joseph Benton having a Bible handed down from his famous ancestor Joseph Bonaparte, the former King of Spain and older brother to Napoleon. Inside the bible is a cipher that family legend says leads to a magnificent treasure stolen from the Spanish Royal Treasury when King Joseph fled Spain. Rachel Riley of the Gouverneur Tribune-Press says, "This exciting treasure hunt blends historical facts with a terrific story and complex characters." The story takes the reader from Lake Bonaparte to Cranberry Lake, Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake and Lake Placid.
