Never Too Early to Plan Ahead
Save the date!! Mark your calendar!!
This year the keynote speaker for Write on the River will be Jonathan Evison. There will be a free public reading at the Wenatchee Public Library on Sunday May 20th, 1:30 – 2:30. Mr. Evison is a local author residing in Western Washington.
His first novel, All About Lulu, was published in 2008. This won the Washington State Book Award. This is a coming of age novel about a young boy dealing with the death of his mother.
Mr. Evison’s second novel, West of Here, was published in 2011. The novel is set in the fictional town of Port Bonita, Washington on the Pacific coast. The book follows two timelines. The first begins in 1889 with the town’s founders. The second is the year 2006 and deals with the descendants of the founders. It is a novel of how mistakes keep happening from generation to generation, but people keep trying to be strong and brave and just and right.
NCRL has copies of both novels.
Hope to see you at the presentation. The authors that have been involved with Write on the River in the past and have come to our library have all been wonderful. As I have said before what a great way to spend an hour on a Sunday afternoon.
