Creekside Books & Coffee Welcomes Back Kim Edwards
Skaneateles Native and Award Winning Author to Visit Creekside Again, September 29th

[Skaneateles, NY]Kim Edwards, a native to Skaneateles and award winning author, will sign her novel, Memory Keeper’s Daughter and The Secrets of a Fire King: Stories, at Creekside Books & Coffee on Saturday, September 29th at 1:00 pm.

“We are so excited to have Kim back for an author event at Creekside and to meet and greet all of her fans,” says Creekside owner Erika L. Davis.  “Both of her books will make great holiday gifts, especially after being personalized by Kim.”

Praise for THE MEMORY KEEPER’S DAUGHTER

“Anyone would be struck by the extraordinary power and sympathy of THE MEMORY KEEPER’S DAUGHTER. 
?The Washington Post

Edwards, the author of a short-story collection and the winner of a Nelson Algren Award is a born novelist.  From the riveting depiction of the twins’ birth, which opens the book, she sustains suspense through 400 pages of compelling prose, consistent characterization and a plot that is poignant without being preachy or sticky-sweet.  THE MEMORY KEEPER’S DAUGHTER is a paean to such persistence and power, rich with psychological detail and the nuances of human connection.”
—Chicago Tribune
