Everyone is invited to join author, Julie Klassen at LaCrescent Public Library on Saturday February 20th to discuss her book The Secret of Pembrooke Park, the 2015 Minnesota Book Award winner for Genre Fiction.
The event begins at 2:00 pm at the library, 321 Main Street, LaCrescent and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
A review of the book from The Minneapolis Star Tribune says, “An abandoned estate with a secret, anonymous letters warning of danger and a handsome vicar next door make Julie Klassen’s novel a deliciously fun read. “
Ms. Klassen worked in publishing for sixteen years (first in advertising, then as a fiction editor) and now writes full time. The Secret of Pembrooke Park won the Minnesota Book Award. Three of her books, The Maid of Fairbourne Hall, The Girl in the Gatehouse, and The Silent Governess have won the Christy Award for Historical Romance. The Maid of Fairbourne Hall and The Girl in the Gatehouse also won a Midwest Book Award and The Silent Governess was a finalist in Romance Writers of America’s RITA awards.
Ms. Klassen graduated from the University of Illinois and enjoys travel, research, BBC period dramas, long hikes, short naps, and coffee with her friends. She and her husband have two sons and live near St. Paul, Minnesota.
