CARTHAGE — Author Raff Ellis will hold a book signing from 5 to 7 p.m. today at Carthage Free Library, 412 Budd St.

“The Bishop’s Curse” resulted from 20 years of research into the 150-year-old story he heard as a youth growing up in Carthage. Mr. Ellis combed through church biographies, archival letters and old newspapers to write a novel about incidents from the 19th century that bear some similarity to more recent problems in the Catholic Church involving sexual abuse.

His first book, “Kisses from a Distance,” was nominated for a National Book Award.
