Local Author Eileen Cook to Read at NVCL on Jan 18

I am very excited about our next author reading here at NVCL!

Eileen Cook is a multi-published young adult author with her novels appearing in six different languages. According to Eileen, she “spent most of her teen years wishing she were someone else or somewhere else, which is great training for a writer.”  Eileen now lives here in North Vancouver with her husband and two dogs, and “no longer wishes to be anyone or anywhere else.” On Wednesday, January 18, at 7pm, she’ll be reading from her newest book Unravelling Isobel.

Here are a few snippets about the book from reviewers:

“This blend of paranormal romance, murder mystery and quirky, coming-of-age narrative offers tasty moments…Cook gives readers a fast-paced plot, a likable narrator, and interesting characters.” – Kirkus

“Isobel, all snark and sharp edges covering some intense vulnerability as she continuously checks in to see if she has crossed into mental illness (as her father did when she was young), is a compelling narrator.” – Horn Book Magazine
