Book Talk with the Author – Karen B. Kurtz
January 21 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Join author Karen B. Kurtz in the GPL Auditorium on Saturday, January 21, at 10:30am. Kurtz will share the publishing journey of her award-winning children’s book Sophia’s Gift. A book signing will follow. No registration required.
Based upon a true story from Civil War-era Virginia, Sophia’s Gift follows Sophia Strauss and her mother, Caroline, as they nurse a wounded soldier back to health. When he recovers enough to travel, the soldier gives Sophia a china doll she names Grace Darling, after the British Victorian icon, Grace Horsley Darling.
Author Karen B. Kurtz has published books, essays, poetry, and countless nonfiction articles for readers of all ages. Sophia’s Gift is her fifth book.
