Join us for Village Books Lynden's very first in-house book group! We are The Front Streeters, led by staff members Cherie and Hannah. We meet the last Thursday of each month at 6pm in the Waples Room at the Inn in Lynden, adjacent to Village Books. Between good books and good people, you're bound to have a good time! Open to all. (Authors do not usually attend).

After the tragic death of her husband and son on a remote island in Washington's San Juan Islands, Eliza Waite joins the throng of miners, fortune hunters, business owners, con men, and prostitutes traveling north to the Klondike in the spring of 1898. When Eliza arrives in Skagway, Alaska, she has less than fifty dollars to her name and not a friend in the world--but with some savvy, and with the help of some unsavory characters, Eliza opens a successful bakery on Skagway's main street and befriends a madam at a neighboring bordello.
