Author Afternoon with OLGA MORRILL, author of Vagabound Quakers

We are wrapping-up our (FA)LALA Saturdays with Olga Morrill and her debut book Vagabond Quakers: Northern Colonies (The Vagabond Trilogy) (Volume 1).

Vagabound QuakersQuakers refrain from violence, but this new historical adventure proves they bear it with courage and passion, when it is brought against them. The heroines of this new historical saga bravely face brutal discrimination and horrific punishments simply for being missionaries for the Society of Friends in Puritan New England.

In 1662 missionaries Mary Tomkins and Alice Ambrose leave England for Dover, Massachusetts. They are missionaries for the Society of Friends, a religion that is shunned and persecuted, particularly in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Quakers have been hanged in Boston—indeed, the women’s friend and mentor Mary Dyer was one of those executed for her beliefs.

The two young Friends are barely on American soil before they are confronted by Dover’s Puritan minister, John Reyner. The humiliated clergyman arranges their arrest, and the women are brought before the magistrate Richard Walderne.

The destinies of Mary, Alice, and Richard entwine in this complex look at faith and brutality in early Colonial American history.

Olga R. Morrill studied theater arts and had a long and distinguished career as a librarian and storyteller. She facilitates the White Mountain Writers Group which published an anthology of their short stories and poetry called The Literary Tourist. She also wrote a weekly column for the Conway Daily Sun, “The Library Connection” for two decades.
Morrill lives with her husband, Stephen, in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.

January Author Luncheon
Friday, January 12, 2018 at 12pm
Sea Dog Brewing Co. North Conway, NH
Cost: $20

Join us for a winter luncheon with one of our favorite authors, Katherine Arden. It's a great way to kick-off the New Year! The luncheon will be hosted by Sea Dog Brewing Company in North Conway, NH. Tickets are $20, which includes luncheon, author talk and donation to North Conway Library.

Tickets can be purchased through the bookstore, call 603-356-3200, or North Conway Library, call 603-356-2961, by January 10.

Katherine will be discussing her second book in the Winternight Trilogy, The Girl in the Tower. But we are hoping she will include the first as well, The Bear and the Nightingale.

A remarkable young woman blazes her own trail, from the backwoods of Russia to the court of Moscow, in the exhilarating sequel to Katherine Arden’s bestselling debut novel, The Bear and the Nightingale.

Katherine Arden’s enchanting first novel introduced readers to an irresistible heroine. Vasilisa has grown up at the edge of a Russian wilderness, where snowdrifts reach the eaves of her family’s wooden house and there is truth in the fairy tales told around the fire. Vasilisa’s gift for seeing what others do not won her the attention of Morozko—Frost, the winter demon from the stories—and together they saved her people from destruction. But Frost’s aid comes at a cost, and her people have condemned her as a witch.

Now Vasilisa faces an impossible choice. Driven from her home by frightened villagers, the only options left for her are marriage or the convent. She cannot bring herself to accept either fate and instead chooses adventure, dressing herself as a boy and setting off astride her magnificent stallion Solovey.

Born in Texas, Katherine attended Middlebury College, where she studied French and Russian literature. She has lived abroad in France and in Moscow, and is fluent in both French and Russian. She has also lived in Hawaii, where she spent time guiding horse trips while writing The Bear and the Nightingale. She currently lives in Vermont.

LISA GARDNER, author of Look for Me  

Monday, February 5, 2018 at 7 p.m.
International Launch Party with LISA GARDNER, author of Look for Me
Event to be held at: Horsefeathers, 2679 White Mountain Highway, North Conway

New year, new book from Valley resident Lisa Gardner! Be there for the international book launch of her latest novel, Look for Me.

Award-winning #1 New York Times Bestselling author and Valley resident, Lisa Gardner, delivers a new pulse-pounding thriller each year and never disappoints. Look for Me  is her new book, debuting on Monday, February 5, and White Birch Books will host the Launch Party. It’s the first place to see Lisa, ask questions, and get your signed copy. In fact, the book does not officially come out until the next day – so it really is the first place in the WORLD to buy her new book.

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner's latest twisty thrill ride, Detective D. D. Warren and Find Her's Flora Dane return in a race against the clock to either save a young girl's life . . . or bring her to justice.

The home of a family of five is now a crime scene: four of them savagely murdered, one—a sixteen-year-old girl—missing. Was she lucky to have escaped? Or is her absence evidence of something sinister? Detective D. D. Warren is on the case—but so is survivor-turned-avenger Flora Dane. Seeking different types of justice, they must make sense of the clues left behind by a young woman who, whether as victim or suspect, is silently pleading, Look for me.

New York Times #1 bestselling crime novelist Lisa Gardner began her career in food service, but after catching her hair on fire numerous times, she took the hint and focused on writing instead and now has over 22 million books in print in over 30 countries.

Lisa lives in New Hampshire with her auto-racing husband and black-diamond skiing daughter. She spends her days writing in her loft with a gentle old sheltie and a wonderfully silly puppy.
