Local authors Katherine Longshore and Talia Vance will be at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis, at 4 p.m. Saturday to discuss their newest novels for young adults, “Tarnish” and “Spies and Prejudice.” There will be gifts, prizes and cake at this event for the whole family.
Longshore also is the author of “Gilt,” a story of friendship and betrayal in Henry VIII’s court. She lives in Northern California with three British citizens and one expatriate dog.
“Tarnish” takes up the story of Anne Boleyn, who finds herself forced to make an impossible choice between her heart’s desire and the chance to make history in the king’s court.
Vance lives in Northern California and has worked as a horse trainer, a freelance writer and an attorney. Her newest book, “Spies and Prejudice,” is a slick romantic spy-thriller where nothing is as it seems. With a playful nod to Jane Austen, “Spies and Prejudice” promises to captivate readers as love and espionage collide.
