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.
