Ever wondered what it’s like to live and travel on your boat for four years? Or how to write a book and find a publisher? Cyndi Perkins has done both. The award-winning journalist, a former Daily Mining Gazette managing editor, talks about her novel inspiration (and yours) at a chat and book-signing on Thursday, October 19 at 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the J. Robert Van Pelt and John and Ruanne Opie Library, East Reading Room. Refreshments will be served.
