Six regional authors will be featured at Washington Public Library’s Sundae with the Authors event this Sunday, June 23, from 2-4 p.m.
Each author will give a brief explanation of his/her book in the library meeting room starting at 2 p.m. After the presentations, authors will move to the library lobby and gallery area in order to meet and greet patrons and sell and sign their books. Ice cream sundaes will be served during the second hour.
This year’s authors include Nina Furstenau, Fayette, whose most recent book is “Savor Missouri: River Hill Country Food and Wine,” which features several Washington area eateries, bakeries and wineries. Furstenau teaches food and wine writing at the University of Missouri School of Science and Agricultural Journalism.
Also appearing will be Washington’s own Charles Bright and his mystery, “Troubled Waters”;
Annette Johnson with her poetry book, “Esteban Gardens”; and
Judith Huntley whose Alaskan adventure “Northbound Into the Wilderness,” was featured in The Missourian’s People section April 27-28. The book is historical fiction based on Huntley’s true life adventures while living in the Alaska wilderness.
Always popular authors Dan Terry, “Haunted Jails and Ghostly Tales of Those Too Ornery to Die”; and Ross Malone, “Mysterious Missouri: ‘Show-Me’ the Strange Stuff,” will be discussing their current titles.
Sundae with the Authors is free and open to the public. No registration is required. It is part of the library’s adult summer reading program.
