Friends of the Library Afternoon Tea and Literary Program
Speaker Kathryn Gualtieri
Sun, Mar. 16, 2 pm
Garden Room, Church of the Wayfarer, 7th & Lincoln, Carmel
The Friends of the Harrison Memorial Library is holding an
Afternoon Tea and Literary Program, featuring author Kathryn
Gualtieri. The local journalist, historian, and author will
discuss her most recent novel, The Laundryman's Daughter
. She will explain how her passion for history,
as well as her experiences reporting for the Carmel Pine Cone, led
her to write a series of mystery novels set in Carmel and the
Central Coast in the 1920s, featuring her remarkable sleuth, Nora
Finnegan. Kathryn will be joined in her presentation by Gayle
Ortiz, mystery writer and owner of Gayle's Bakery in Capitola.
