Anne Clinard Barnhill will return to City Lights Bookstore to read from her newest historical novel on Saturday, April 12, at 3 p.m. “Queen Elizabeth’s Daughter” is the gripping tale of Mary Shelton, Elizabeth I's young cousin and ward. When Mary falls in love with a man not of Elizabeth’s choosing, her place of privilege is suddenly very much in question. The young couple could be risking death by defying the wishes of a wrathful queen.
Barnhill has been writing or dreaming of writing for most of her life. For the past 20 years, she has published articles, book and theater reviews, poetry, and short stories. She lives with her husband of 30 years in North Carolina. To reserve copies of her books, call City Lights Bookstore at (828)586-9499.
