Kristen Harnisch, author of “The Vintner’s Daughter”

Kristen Harnisch, author of The Vintner’s Daughter, will be our featured speaker. Kristen will discuss how Darien Library helped her transition from banker, to stay-at-home mom, to debut novelist.

The Vintner’s Daughter was honored by Readers’ Favorite earlier this month with the Bronze award in their “Historical Fiction – Personage” category.

The award is offered internationally and follows a rave review on their website, in which they said the novel “will completely sweep readers off their feet and deep into a historical romance of winemaking.”

Prior to Kristen’s presentation, learn about the year’s developments from Amy Cholnoky, President of the Board. Election of officers and new trustee nominations for the 2015-16 year will be held.

The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
