Author Cristie Coffing Honored by King County Library System

FVP Featured Author, Cristie Coffing’s literary fiction novel, Carnival Man, has been chosen by Friends of the Library and endorsed by King County Library System for their Community Reads program for Spring 2019 in the Snoqualmie Valley region.

Cristie Coffing Valley Reads flyerCarnival Man attempts to answer the question – if you can see the future, can you change it? Set in a logging town in the Northwest, a river town in the post Vietnam era, it is the story of Emma, a young girl coming of age, who has the ability to read nature. Emma finds the river her sanctuary while struggling in her love/hate relationship with her mother Rosalene, a tarot card reader and seer.

Rosalene lives her life with complete acceptance of impermanence and abandonment, until she is forced to confront the burning question, when does a gift become a curse?

Emma’s best friend Kimmy, has the ability to raise the dead with the melodies of her flute and is a captivating siren for the men surrounding her. She is driven by the desire for physical touch and affection.

Three women bound in their relationship to one another, drawn together in their search for love and their struggle for survival. Each forever touched by the magic of the traveling carnival and its underlying grittiness…

Cristie will do a Reading from Carnival Man and then lead the attendees in a Group Discussion of this thought-provoking and moving story of Emma, Kimmy and Rosalene.

She’s down to earth and accessible, and I’m sure those who attend will be entertained and enlightened as she shares some of her writings and her processes with us.                                         –Sheri J. Kennedy
