The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey
By: James Lecesne
August 5 - August 20, 2021
Police detective Chuck DeSantis portrays every character in a small Jersey Shore town as he unravels the story of Leonard Pelkey, a tenaciously optimistic and flamboyant fourteen-year-old-boy who goes missing. A luminous force of nature whose magic is only truly felt once he is gone, Leonard becomes an unexpected inspiration as the town's citizens question how they live, who they love, and what they leave behind.
