RVS VIDEO INTERVIEW: Woodstock Reads author Beth Powning

by | Oct 2, 2023

The River Valley Sun’s Theresa Blackburn spoke with New Brunswick author Beth Powning about her new book “The Sister’s Tale.”

The book, chosen for this year’s Woodstock Reads, is a national bestseller. The Sister’s Tale is a novel about orphans, widows, terror, hope, and relationships that hold us together when things fall apart. With murder dominating the news, the respected wife of a New Brunswick sea captain is drawn into the case of a British Home Child whose bad luck has turned worse.

Beth speaks with Theresa about her background, how she began writing, where she draws her inspiration, and offers tips to aspiring writers.

Woodstock Reads takes place on Thursday, Oct. 19, at the Best Western in Woodstock. Tickets are $20 and are available at the L.P. Fisher Library and at the Woodstock municipal office.
