Author Events

Rosanne Parry
Fri. & Sat., June 3rd & 4th at 11 am

New York Times Bestselling Author Rosanne Parry will present two in-person events at the Library including a writer's workshop (June 3rd) and fun, family book event (June 4th).

Parry is the author of A Whale of the Wild, a novel that has been translated into 14 languages and explores the family bonds of orcas and their survival in a changing seascape.

Her book can be found in the library's collection and Darvill's Bookstore will be on hand for book sales for Saturday's event.

Both events are free and open to the public and in partnership with the Orcas Lit Fest. The workshop covers the research process and also the techniques of immersing yourself in an animal character.

Please join us for one or both of these special library events.

Featured Artist for May:
Betty Reynolds

Betty is the author/ artist of five illustrated books about Japan and two about Orcas Island.

She is honored to be “Miss May.” Please stop in and see her work!

Betty left her career as an advertising art director in Philadelphia to accompany her husband, Frank Maher, to Singapore and then Tokyo, where they lived for seven years. While there, she became an author.

After Frank’s retirement they discovered Orcas Island, where they have resided ever since. Her show consists of many paintings portraying the animals, foods, events and locations that she enjoys here.
