The Stayton Public Library is excited to announce a visit featuring New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marie Bostwick on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 7:00 pm in the E. G. Siegmund Meeting Room. There will be a reception accompanying the event.
Marie Bostwick is the bestselling author of novels about family, relationships, and women’s friendships. Drawing on her lifelong love of quilting and themes of special relevance to modern women, Marie’s Cobbled Court Quilt series has gained a dedicated following among quilters as well as those who’ve never threaded and needle and don’t plan to try.
Marie was born and raised in the northwest, but in the three decades since her marriage, Marie and her family have lived in 8 different states at 18 different addresses. These experiences have given Marie a unique perspective that enables her to write about people from all walks of life and corners of the country with insight and authenticity.
Marie lives in Oregon with Brad, her husband of thirty-five years. When not writing, she enjoys quilting, reading, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and especially playing with her grandsons. Marie travels extensively, speaking at libraries, bookstores, quilt guilds, and at quilt shows. She has been a featured speaker at the Paducah Quilt Festival and the Houston International Quilt Festival and has given keynote addresses at both the Florida Writers Association and La Jolla Writers conferences.
The Stayton Public Library’s speaking events for 2018 are sponsored by the Stayton Friends of the Library.
