Rising local author Kelli Estes, author of "Today We Go Home"
Monday, January 6, 2020
Here is a chance to see a rising author, early in her career! Kelli Estes talks about her second novel, "Today We Go Home." This event is co-sponsored with the Everett Woman's Book Club.
Estes, raised in Yakima, now of Woodinville, writes with a Northwest slant: One of her protagonists in “Today We Go Home” is a traumatized woman soldier from Woodinville, just back from combat duty in Afghanistan, who becomes linked through an old diary to a woman soldier posing as a man during the Civil War. This dual-narrative style, across time, has been a feature of Estes’s first two novels; Her first novel “The Girl Who Wrote in Silk” concerned two Washingtonians living 130 years apart on Orcas Island.
