Bainbridge Island best-selling author Carol Cassella will be celebrating the debut of her latest novel, “Gemini,” with a release party at Eagle Harbor Book Company in downtown Winslow at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 4.

The author will be on hand to read from the novel, answer questions and sign books.

Inspired by her own background as a medical doctor, Cassella’s “Gemini” is a medical mystery, a love story and an exploration of family in all of its myriad definitions.

It is a gripping fictional narrative that will spark conversations about the very real moral dilemmas we face in this age of medical miracles.

Cassella’s first book, “Oxygen,” remains a perennial book group favorite, as does her other best-known work, “Healer.”

Cassella is not the only author that will be visiting Winslow in the coming weeks.

Also next week at the Winslow bookstore, Port Townsend author Adrianne Harun will talk about her book “A Man Who Came Out of a Door in the Mountain.”

In this chilling debut novel, girls in British Columbia disappear from along a notorious highway, and four friends find themselves pulled into an increasingly troubling landscape in which the devil himself seems to come to play.

Harun weaves together folklore, mythology, and elements of magical realism to create a compelling and unsettling portrait of life in a dead-end town.

She will visit Eagle Harbor books for an event at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 6.

And at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 9, Northwest poet Cathy Warner will read from her new book “Burnt Offerings.”
