‘Patchwork: The Fabric of a Life’ to be featured at Fall Book Sale
Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital Auxiliary will hold its Fall Book Sale, in cooperation with Bob’s Beach Books, on Wednesday, Nov. 2, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the hospital cafeteria. Lincoln City resident Rebecca Edwards Yasenchak will be the featured guest author.
Christmas books, Oregon authors, new releases and gift items will be available for sale. If a book or gift item you want is not in stock the day of the sale a special order can be placed. In addition, the guest author will be available to sell and sign copies of her novel, “Patchwork: The Fabric of a Life.”
After a career with the Internal Revenue Service during which she wrote “scores of technically accurate and extremely boring position papers, decision documents and training manuals,” Yasenchak switched to creative writing. First came a family memoir, then a cookbook and now this historical fiction novel based on the life of Euphemia Minor (1844 –1925). In 1876, Minor was thrust into the role of a single parent when her abusive, alcoholic husband of 14 years abandoned her and their four young boys. Alone in an isolated cabin she had to find a way to not only survive, but thrive.
The SNLH Auxiliary hosts the fundraising book sale twice a year. Proceeds from this sale will go toward the purchase of new furniture for the surgery department’s two waiting areas.
