PORT TOWNSEND — The Castle in Port Townsend will host a book launch party at 7 p.m. Thursday.
The party, in Manresa Castle, 651 Cleveland St., will celebrate the novel “The Grand Promise” by Rebekah Anderson.
The book is Anderson’s first novel and also is the first novel published by the Chimacum-based Empty Bowl Press.
The book is a fictionalized account of the communities impacted by the construction of the Grand Coulee Dam during the 1930s.
Anderson will be joined by authors Jeremiah Morgan, Will O’Donnell and Ben Thomas for a Q&A session and a staged reading from the book in the Castle’s Haunted Ballroom.
The reading will be followed by a book signing and after party in The Green Room Bar and Bookshop.
