Special Author Event

Bestselling author, Kristin Hannah, to appear at
Friends of Public Libraries special author event!

The Women!: A Novel

Kristin Hannah, bestselling author of 24 novels will make a special appearance in Lancaster County on as part of her Book Tour announcing the debut of her latest novel, THE WOMEN!



The event will be held on Saturday, February 10, 2024 11:00AM at the Calvary Church, 1051 Landis Valley Rd, Lancaster, PA.

The Council of Friends of Public Libraries and Midtown Scholar Books will host the event, which is a fundraiser for all of the public libraries in Lancaster County. The event is one of the stops on Hannah’s book tour celebrating the release of her latest novel, The Women.

The Women is the story of a turbulent era in America: the 1960s and the women who volunteered as nurses during the Vietnam war. It is an intimate portrait of a woman coming of age in a dangerous time and an epic tale of a nation divided by war and of a generation both fueled by dreams and lost on the battlefield.
