Author Event & Book Signing with Beverly Lewis

Friday, April 5, 2019

Join us as New York Times bestselling author Beverly Lewis stops at the Frank L. Weyenberg Library as she tours the Midwest to talk about her new book, "The Tinderbox." "The Tinderbox" is a stand-alone novel set in her beloved Lancaster County and featuring her trademark look at Amish family life. Books will be available for sale at the event in partnership with Boswell Books.

About The Tinderbox

With her parents' twentieth anniversary approaching, eighteen-year-old Sylvia Miller finds her father's cherished brass tinderbox left unlocked. Against her better judgment, Sylvia opens the heirloom, not realizing that what she is about to discover will splinter apart her happy life and alter everything for her close-knit Old Order Amish family. As the long-kept secret emerges into the light of day, can the Millers find a way forward through the turmoil to a place of forgiveness?
