Author Viola Shipman (Wade Rouse) will be here and the excitement is mounting! We have available all of his fine books but we are especially enamored of “The Secret of Snow” as it mentions our local Yeti-Fest. Now everyone in the world knows about how cool it is! But the book we will be featuring at this event will be the perfect summer read called “Edge of Summer”. This will also be a Facebook Live event, with a Q & A period, time for questions and for book signing afterwards. Expect fun!Wade  is the USA TODAY and internationally bestselling author of 13 books. His books have been translated into 21 languages and have been bestsellers across the world. He chose his grandmother’s name, Viola Shipman, as a pen name to honor the working poor Ozarks woman whose heirlooms and family stories inspire his fiction. 


Edge of Summer by Viola Shipman

Traumatized by the sudden death of her mother–a quiet, loving, overprotective seamstress called Miss Mabel who sacrificed everything for her daughter’s education but rarely spoke of her own family—Sutton Douglas makes the impulsive decision to pack up and start over in the Michigan resort town where she believes she’ll find answers to the lifelong questions she’s had about her mother’s past.
