GP Library Branch Features Local Author Discussion Followed by Book-Signing

Citizens are invited to meet local author Jennifer Sherman Roberts for a discussion featuring her debut novel "The Village Healer's Book of Cures" on Saturday at the Grants Pass branch of Josephine Community Library.

Saturday's discussion runs from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the library branch on NW C Street followed by a book-signing event at Oregon Books & Games at 150 NE E Street from 2 to 4 p.m..

The "Village Healer's Book of Cures" takes place in 17th century England. A female healer enflames the fury of a witchfinder in this propulsive novel about murder, revenge and the dangerous power of knowledge.

Jennifer Roberts is a writer, researcher, teacher and a facilitator for Oregon Humanities Conversation Projects. She received a PhD in early modern literature from the University of Minnesota. She became interested in early modern recipes and recipe books as she researched the medicinal properties of folk cures.

"The Village Healer's Book of Cures" can be placed on hold for checkout at the library and is for sale at Oregon Books & Games.

This program is offered at no charge and it's open to the public. A library card is not needed to participate.
