Author Visits in September: Sandra Bryd and Amanda Coplin

Paula Walters - Thursday, August 30, 2012

We have two authors coming to NCRL in September.

Author Sandra Byrd's program will be Thursday September 20th at the Wenatchee Public Library  7 pm - 9 pm.  She will be reading from her second novel in her Ladies in Waiting Series, The Secret Keeper: A Novel of Kateryn Parr.  The first novel in the series is To Die For: A Novel of Anne Boleyn.  NCRL has copies of both novels available.  The third novel will be published in 2013, Roses Have Thorns: A Novel of Elizabeth I.

There will also be a slide show about Henry the VIII and his wives.  Sandra Byrd will also have recommendations of other books about England's history.  She is a local author living in Washington.  Please join us on the 20th of September.


Author Amanda Coplin will be reading from her historical novel, The Orchardist, which takes place in Monitor. The program will be Friday, September 28th, 7 pm - 9 pm at the NCRL Distribution Center, 16 N Columbia St. Wenatchee. 

Ms. Coplin was born in Wenatchee and spent much of her youth at her grandfather's orchard in Monitor.  This is her debut novel.  The Seattle Times wrote, "The Orchardist beautifully conveys the sights, smells and landscape of Eastern Washington orchard country in an era before telephones and automobiles." The book was named one of Publisher's Weekly's top ten literary picks for this fall.  NCRL has copies of her novel available. A local author she now lives in Portland, Oregon.  Please come to welcome Amanda Coplin back to Wenatchee.


Thursday September 20th, Sandra Byrd, Wenatchee Public Library 7 pm - 9 pm.

Friday September 28th, Amanda Coplin, NCRL Distribution Center 16 N Columbia St 7 pm - 9pm.

Author Sandra Byrd Coming to WPL

Paula Walters - Monday, August 06, 2012

Washington State author Sandra Byrd will be at the Wenatchee Public Library September 20th 7p.m - 9 p.m.

She will be reading from her Ladies in Waiting series.  Book 1, To Die For is a historical novel about Anne Boleyn. Library Journal listed this as one of the best books of 2011, and the book is also a  2012 Christy Award Finalist.  Book 2, The Secret Keeper is about Kateryn Parr. This novel was just published in June 2012 . The third novel in the series, Roses Have Thorns is about Elizabeth I.  This will be published in 2013.  At the program Sandra will read from her novels, and there will also be a slide show about Henry VIII and his wives.  She will also recommend other Tudor books.  It should be an interesting program. I enjoy historical novels about England.  

Hard to believe that it is the 6th of August.  I hope everyone has had an enjoyable summer so far, with fun vacations and plenty of time to read!!
