Going Over the Falls, with Amy Waeschle
Join us when surf and travel writer and wilderness medicine expert Amy Waeschle talks about her new novel, Going Over the Falls, Thursday, June 29, at 6:30pm. Amy will discuss the Northwest surfing scene and how it inspires her writing, share funny stories about the writing process, and read a sample surf scene from the book that one reviewer calls “thriller poetry.”
In Going Over the Falls, surfer and E.R. doctor Lorna Jacobs is pulled into a dangerous journey to find her estranged mother, who is dying from a mysterious illness. Lorna finally finds her, deep in Mexico, but Alex is more concerned with rekindling their mutual love of surfing than preparing for her last days. The secret big wave she plans to share with Lorna could bond them forever, or destroy them.
“Amy Waeschle has crafted a novel with beautiful prose, characters that stay with you, and a story that is as unpredictable as the ocean itself. Catch this wave.” -- Jeff Shelby
