Learning to Waltz: Author talk

Meet award winning author Kerryn Reid. In her own words she describes her writings: “The place is England. The time is the early 1800s the Regency. My stories are small. Intimate. You’ll find no warring armies, no sweeping sagas. They’re historical, because I love history. And they’re romance, because the world needs happy endings. In ‘Learning to Waltz,’ I introduce you to Deborah and Evan. I know them as well as I know myself, and I hope that you, too, will catch a glimpse into their hearts. Let me know if I’ve found the right words”

Wednesday, March 9, at 4 p.m.
