Author Laura Schofer discusses "The Fingerprint of Destiny" at the Freeport Memorial Library
Author Laura Schofer discusses her novel "The Fingerprint of Destiny" and community journalism.
Laura Schofer is an award-winning journalist who has reported on Long Island community
news for nearly 20 years. Ms Schofer has won journalism awards from the National Newspaper Association
and the Press Club of Long Island for environmental as well as investigative journalism.
She has also written about Long Island’s rich history and the people and places that make
America’s first suburb a unique place to live.
“Fingerprint of Destiny” is her first novel, which reflects her experience as a journalist as well as
her family’s Latin American background that hails from Venezuela as well as Argentina.
Additionally, Laura Schofer has written several plays – “Silent History,” a play about famous women
from Long Island and “Cleaning Lessons,” a two character play about a cleaning lady on Long Island.
“Silent History” was produced at the Speigel Theatre at Hofstra University in conjunction with a
conference on Long Island Women. “Cleaning Lessons” was produced in conjunction with the
“Women and Work Performance Project” by NEAR Theatre in Huntington.
Ms. Schofer has an MFA in Dramatic Writing from New York University and a BA from Wheaton College.
She is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists, The Pen and Brush,
and is an associate member of the Dramatist Guild.
"The Fingerprint of Destiny” is a story of arson, murder, love and obsession. In the small suburban community of
Hope's Point, Long Island something has gone horribly wrong. A series of arsons in landmark homes, now run
down and over run by Latino immigrants, is destroying the community. Ellie Sinclair is the troubled,
almost middle-aged publisher of a small town newspaper struggling to make ends meet. The arsons are
just another story, until her estranged mother, Hortensia Borgias Sinclair, returns to town and dies in the latest arson.
Is Hortensia’s violent death her destiny, as she always claimed it would be or is it something more insidious?
Through a series of twists and turns, Ellie must find out who is behind the arsons and why. She must shine
a light in the dark places of her town, the slums and factories, where Latino immigrants struggle to make a
life in suburban America.
And then there is a larger mystery to be solved. All the women in Ellie’s family are born with a small red
birthmark on their left arm, a signature called the Fingerprint of Destiny. In a series of flashbacks, interspersed
throughout the novel, we learn about the violent fate of the other women in Ellie’s family. These stories are filled
with adventure, magic, murder, retribution, love, war and an obsession that spans the centuries and take us
from the jungles and plains of Venezuela to a pristine community of suburban New York. Ellie must figure
out not only the present mystery but also her past and future. Can Ellie carve out a life for herself or will she
succumb to the Fingerprint of Destiny?

Ken LaZebnik: “Hollywood Digs” Reading and Book Signing. (FREE)
shares the secrets of Hollywood in his new book, which digs out stories of unexpected and astounding lives. He will share his experience working with Peter O’Toole on “Thomas Kinkade’s Christmas Cottage,” which combined the grace of O’Toole with the crazy unpredictability of the “Painter of Light” Kinkade. Ken LaZebnik
— co-author of Robert Altman’s last film PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION, and writer/producer of over a hundred hours of network television - unearths film history from Hollywood’s Golden Age in his new book Hollywood Digs: An Archaeology of Shadows. Join him as he tells the story of a film which combined the impeccable Peter O’Toole with the immensely popular artist — and secret alcoholic — Thomas Kinkade. His book also chronicles the romantic and tragic saga of Jock Mahoney, legendary stuntman and Hollywood’s thirteenth Tarzan; F. Scott Fitzgerald’s life in a cottage on the estate of film butler Edward Everett Horton; and the story of the real Gidget — who is alive, well, and Jewish. In a Q&A, LaZebnik will give readers an insider’s look at how Hollywood works, sharing his own experience of success and failure. “These essays are wonderful untold histories behind the people, places and movies of Hollywood. Ken LaZebnik is a gentle soul with an eye for story and a gift for words, which makes it amazing that he’s ever had a day of work in this town.” — Brian Rooney. About the Author: Ken LaZebnik writes for television, film and the theater. His work includes collaborating with Garrison Keillor on Robert Altman’s last film, A Prairie Home Companion, many years of writing for hour-long television dramas, and ten plays, two of which have won citations from The American Theatre Critics Association (ATCA). His most recent play, On the Spectrum, was commissioned by The Mixed Blood Theatre in Minneapolis in 2011 and was voted by the ATCA as one of the three best new plays premiered outside New York City. On The Spectrum premiered in Los Angeles in March of 2013, at the Fountain Theatre. LaZebnik wrote the film Thomas Kinkade’s Christmas Cottage, which featured Peter O’Toole and Marcia Gay Harden. For television, he has written on series as varied as Touched By An Angel, Army Wives, When Calls The Heart, Providence, and Star Trek: Enterprise. During his seven-year tenure on Touched By An Angel, he wrote over twenty episodes. He wrote three PBS specials for their series “In Concert at the White House,” which were filmed in the East Room of the White House. LaZebnik is the Founding Director of the proposed Stephens College Low-Residency MFA in TV and Screenwriting, a new low-residency MFA to be based in Los Angeles. About the Book: “This incredible collection of essays, each one a true gem, digs in below the surface of Hollywood’s famous and unknown. Like a true anthropologist, LaZebnik uncovers the telling details that illuminate whole lives. With the flair of a short story writer he ranges from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s abode in a film butler’s cottage, Jack Nicholson’s early auditions, and the origins of that lovable beach bunny, Gidget among others.” Anne Carlini, annecarlini.com
