Peninsula authors to hold book reading, signing this Monday

PORT ANGELES — Olympic Peninsula Authors on Monday will offer humor, adventure, inspiration, romance and murder.

Seven authors from Port Angeles or Sequim will read from their work from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Carver Room of the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.

“It is the mission of the Olympic Peninsula Authors group to promote awareness of the many talented au­thors working here on the [North Olympic] Peninsula,” said event organizer Linda B. Myers.

Heidi Hansen, co-organizer, added that the authors will “do short readings to give listeners a flavor of their work and will sign and sell copies. People who come to the event can feel free to ask them questions about writing as a profession.”

Featured authors include the following:

• Gene G. Bradbury, Sequim, will offer a wide selection of picture books and children’s literature as well as poetry for adults.

• Michael Bunnell, Sequim, has written everything from news articles to television scripts. He will present two novels, both humorous historical fiction.

• Howard Chadwick, Sequim, is an outdoorsman and artist who writes narrative poetry as therapy for his readers and himself. He will sell two books of collected works.

• Hansen, a retired Realtor from Sequim, will offer a new collection of short stories.

• Jane Nichols, Sequim, writes award-winning contemporary romance and romantic sus­pense. She will offer three books at the event.
