Holly Ringland in Conversation with Michelle Nicole Gerrard

Join us in the bookshop for a conversation with author Holly Ringland and local writer and creative Michelle Nicole Gerrard! They'll be discussing Holly's latest release, "The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding" (available 2/6).

The last time Esther Wilding's beloved older sister Aura was seen, she was walking along the shore towards the sea. In the wake of Aura's disappearance, Esther's family struggles to live with their loss. To seek the truth about her sister's death, Esther reluctantly follows the trail of the stories Aura left behind: seven fairy tales about selkies, swans and women, alongside cryptic verses Aura wrote and had secretly tattooed on her body. This is a sweeping, deeply beautiful and profoundly moving novel about the far reaches of sisterly love, the power of wearing your heart on your skin and the ways life can transform when we find the courage to feel the fullness of both grief and joy.

Books are available for preorder in the shop or online at timbrebooks.com.
