New York Times bestselling author, Kristina McMorris, will be reading from and discussing her latest novel, Sold on a Monday.
McMorris’ writing career began with a recipe book of her grandmother’s favorite recipes, Grandma Jean’s Rainy Day Recipes, a collection that she published by herself to benefit Oregon’s Food Bank. The process of collecting the recipes led to the discovery of her grandfather’s letters to his sweetheart during his naval service in WWII, which she used to inspire her first novel, Letters from Home.
Since then, McMorris has written several novels and novellas, which have received twenty national literary awards honoring her subtle intermingling of history and fiction. Her works include: Bridge of Scarlet Leaves, The Pieces We Keep, and The Edge of Lost. Sold on a Monday captures a poignant story surrounding a real photo that created a media sensation in 1948.
McMorris has a background in children’s television programming and media and public relations. Her diverse talents have earned her a place in Portland’s “Forty Under 40” in The Business Journal.
This is a free event and open to all to attend.
