From 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21, at the Fort Vancouver Visitor Center, widely-known and well-loved historical novelist Jane Kirkpatrick will be discussing stories and characters of the Pacific Northwest. You can learn more about Kirkpatrick and her many other novels by following her on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/theauthorjanekirkpatrick or visiting her website at jkbooks.com.
In Kirkpatrick’s most recent novel, lead character Jennie Pickett Parrish is a natural healer, but her dream to become a doctor in 1870s Oregon puts her at odds with the world around her. As she struggles to keep her dream alive, she finds that the road to fulfillment winds past love, heartache, and plenty of surprises along the way.
Following the presentation at 1 p.m., Kirkpatrick will sign copies of her most recent book, All She Left Behind, which will be available for sale at the Friends of Fort Vancouver book store in the Visitor Center. This event, which is free to attend, is hosted by the Friends of Fort Vancouver and Vintage Books, in partnership with Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. The Fort Vancouver Visitor Center is located at 1501 E. Evergreen Blvd. in Vancouver.
