Seven Seattle-area authors will host a benefit Friday, Sept. 14 at the Bainbridge Performing Arts Center to assist the Kitsap Regional Library Foundation.
The theme for the night is discovery: Where are great stories born? The authors will be discussing how they came up with the ideas for what became the magic of their books.
The writers are:
Erik Larson, author of highly acclaimed non-fiction works including “In the Garden of Beasts,” “The Devil in White City” and “Isaac’s Storm”;
Elizabeth George, author of “Believing the Lie” and the Inspector Lynley series of mysteries set in England;
Garth Stein, author of ”The Art of Racing in the Rain”;
Jim Lynch, author of “Truth Like the Sun,” “Border Songs” and “The Highest Tide”;
Carol Cassella author of “Healer” and “Oxygen”;
Kevin O’Brien, author of “Disturbed”; and
Jennie Shortridge, author of “When She Flew.”
Shortridge will act as the panel’s moderator and master of ceremonies.
The lively discussion will be followed by a complimentary wine-and-cheese reception with the writers. Tickets are $50 and are considered tax-deductible donations to the Kitsap Regional Library Foundation, which raises funds to support the programs and services of Kitsap Regional Library.
