Bainbridge Island’s Susan Wiggs will be the first author to give a talk aboard the Bainbridge Island-Seattle ferry as part of the Kitsap Library’s new “Books Afloat” program.

Books Afloat will feature one author each month who will make a round trip on an afternoon run and give a book talk. The program will have other literary-related talks each Thursday, with librarians offering their reading recommendations. The Kitsap Library’s “Ferry Tales” book club, held one Thursday a month on the Bainbridge-Seattle ferry run, will now become part of the Books Afloat program.

Wiggs will talk about “The Apple Orchard,” her new novel that is centered around a family and their apple orchard, during the Books Afloat program on Thursday, April 25. “The Apple Orchard” is scheduled for release a week after her ferry talk.

Wiggs is a New York Times bestselling author who has penned more than 40 contemporary and historical novels.

She has earned three RITA awards from the Romance Writers of America, for “Lakeside Cottage,” “Lord of the Night” and “The Mistress.” Her novel “The Charm School” was honored with the Dorothy Parker Award of Excellence and designated a “Favorite Book of the Year” by Romance Writers of America.
