Join us in the Readings Gallery for Carolyn Dale's debut novel presentation.
Lauren has bought a café in a Cascade Mountains town where she hopes to burnish her reputation and move on as a chef. But a struggle is building between the townspeople and a billionaire whose secret project threatens their lands and way of life. Forced toward a deeper question—How shall we live, if we truly believe the earth is alive?—an eclectic group draws on both ancient traditions and modern cultures to create a new kind of city. With transformations surrounding her, Lauren faces bittersweet choices among friendships, work, and the man and the place she is coming to love.
Carolyn Dale has worked as a journalist, editor, and professor and now writes fiction and essays. She lives in Bellingham where she taught in Western Washington University’s Journalism Department. She enjoys gardening, cooking, travel, and hiking—especially on Mount Baker, which inspired the setting for Second Rising, her first novel.
