On Aug. 2, the Kitsap Regional Library Foundation is hosting its second Author! Author! event with Debbie Macomber and Will Schwalbe.
“Author! Author! is a unique event bringing together two high-profile authors for an evening of conversation, chef-prepared local food, wine and beer,” said Jaime Forsyth, executive director of Kitsap Regional Library Foundation. “Kitsap’s own Debbie Macomber will be hosting a conversation with Will Schwalbe, author of ‘The End of Your Life Book Club.’ Debbie personally requested Will, saying that she felt a strong connection with Will and the memoir of his mother’s last days.”
Barnes and Noble will be there with a selection of the authors’ books for signing.
Tickets cost $50 and a portion of book sales will go to support the Kitsap Regional Library. Proceeds will be used in purchasing new digital materials for the library collection, Forsyth said. Dinner, wine and beer are included in the cost of the ticket.
The event will be in the award-winning Rice Fergus Miller Architecture building in downtown Bremerton.
“These author events are a unique way that we connect our local authors, our donors and book lovers throughout the area,” said Forsyth. “We know that the people that support our library system appreciate the opportunity to mix and mingle with these authors and especially appreciate the local connection by having Debbie lead the conversation.”
