A WRITER’S JOURNEY: WHAT DO MERMAIDS,

QUILTING AND THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION HAVE COMMON 

Tues., Sept. 20

11AM-12PM

Lower South Classroom

Join Spokane author Beth Camp as she talks about the links between history, myth, and quilt-making –

and how she came to write historical fiction set in 19th Century Scotland, Australia, and Canada.  

A summer trip to Fort Vancouver in Washington State jumpstarted her writing career when she

saw a small sign that read: “Here, Scots worked in the fields, alongside Hawaiians and

Native Americans.” This began her award-winning, three-book historical fiction series

about the McDonnell Clan, beginning with Standing Stones set in the 1840s in Scotland.

This fiction explores how we survive seemingly impossible situations to achieve our dreams.
