(ELLSTON) A well known author of young adult books will speak at the Ellston Community Library on January 7th.
The Ellston Community Library and an Ellston area book club welcome Wendy Delsol, of Des Moines, best known for her young-adult trilogy of Stork, Frost and Tide, and newly released novel called The McCloud Home for Wayward Girls. Delsol will do a reading from these books and share the research that went into developing her characters and stories. The McCloud Home for Wayward Girls is set in Eastern Iowa and tells the saga of three generations of women and the secrets that bind them together. The story also focuses on the impact the Home and its family of owners has on the community and those around them.
The January 7th program begins at 10 a.m. Anyone who has already read Delsol’s book and wants to discuss its rich and colorful characters in depth are invited to join her and others for the discussion. If you haven’t read her novel yet and don’t want its contents or ending revealed, come to the library at 11 a.m.
If you don’t have Delsol’s books but want to purchase them, Delsol will bring plenty of books to sell and autograph. She will also sign any previously purchased books.
