Waucoma hosts two author events on June 3

One with local author, one with students

Waucoma Bookstore is hosting local Gorge author Miralee Ferrell for an author reception on Friday, June 3, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the bookstore in Hood River.

Ferrell will be discussing her new book "Love Finds You in Tombstone, Arizona."

Love and second chances aren't easy to come by in a town named Tombstone. When Christy Grey receives an urgent summons to Tombstone, Ariz., she reluctantly leaves her new life in California. The trip goes from bad to worse when three masked men hold up Christy's stage. She finally arrives in Tombstone to find her mother ill and her brother trapped in a life of gambling. Desperate for money to support her family, will Christy bow to pressure from the local saloon owners and return to the life she thought she'd given up for good?

Nevada Keene has problems of his own. He's been dodging bullets for years and wants nothing more than to settle down and get married. But he's on the run from outlaws bent on revenge, and the one woman who captures his interest recognizes him from the stagecoach holdup. Will Christy turn Nevada in to the authorities, or will the outlaws on his trail catch him first?

Ferrell heads the local chapter of American Christian Fiction Writers serving the Portland-Vancouver area. She is a published author in both women's contemporary fiction and historical romance. She's married and has two children, loves to garden, read, ride horses and sail with her husband.

Waucoma Bookstore is hosting the book release and book signing event for the 10th Anniversary edition of Shared Voices.

The reading will be on Friday, June 3,from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

New and returning writers from the Gorge Literacy program will be reading their work and signing copies of Shared Voices

Shared Voices was started 10 years ago as a project of Gorge Literacy, a program of Columbia Gorge Community College, as an opportunity for beginning writers to become published authors.

Gorge Literacy asks Columbia Gorge Community College pre-college instructors and volunteer literacy tutors to encourage their students to submit writing pieces for the Shared Voices publication each year.

The book release event is a special way to recognize emerging writers and celebrate their achievements. Join new writers and others at this tenth anniversary celebration of Shared Voices, A New Writers' Collection, an annual publication from Gorge Literacy and Columbia Gorge Community College.
