Linda Zimmerman’s New Zombie Book Set in Nyack

Linda Zimmerman, author of "HVZA: Hudson Valley Zombie Apocalypse"

In local author Linda Zimmermann’s latest book, “HVZA: Hudson Valley Zombie Apocalypse,” Rockland is under siege by something even more frightening than property taxes—-zombies. On Tuesday, June 12, at 7 p.m., Zimmermann will be at the Barnes & Noble at the Palisades Center to discuss the book and sign copies for both the living and the undead.

Zimmermann is the award-winning author of 29 books and has lived her entire life in the Hudson Valley. With the current popularity of the zombie genre, she decided “It was time for us to have our own apocalypse.”

“HVZA,” which has been called a “riveting page-turner” and given “five stars and two thumbs up,” chronicles the spread of an unknown infection from the initial outbreak, through a region-wide quarantine, to the collapse of society. The heroine of the story lives in Nyack and works at a research facility in Tarrytown.

The appearance date, June 12, 2012, was chosen as it is an important day in the book—-the day the zombie infection begins to spread.
