Author Visit: Rene Denfeld -- The Enchanted Wednesday, March 29, 7:00-9:00 p.m. Rene Denfeld, author of three non-fiction books, will discuss her latest book, the novel The Enchanted (2014). Denfeld is by profession a death penalty investigator who works with men and women facing execution. The novel's narrator explores an unexpected enchanted world: a death row in an ancient stone prison viewed through the eyes of a death row inmate, who finds escape in his books and in re-imaging life around him. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Penfield Public Library and the Gift & Memorial Fund of the Penfield Public Library. It is part of the Rochester Reads 2017 series.
