Woodridge Public Library, Mahlke Room

Keziah Frost will discuss the writing and path to publication of her debut novel, The Reluctant Fortune-Teller.  She will talk about where the idea came from, and where novel ideas come from generally, as well as the writing process, what she learned that helped her to finish the novel, and her own path to publication.

The Reluctant Fortune-Teller is about a retired accountant who is forced to become the town card reader in order to pay his Chihuahua’s vet bill. It is a life-affirming story about how we continue growing into ourselves all our lives long.
