Eve Sprunt of Dublin, a member of the California Writers Club Tri-Valley Branch, will be participating in her city's second annual Indie Author Day Celebration being held from 12-4 p.m. next Saturday (Oct. 12) at the Dublin Public Library.
Sprunt was the first woman to earn a doctorate in geophysics from Stanford University. She holds 23 patents and has authored dozens of scholarly papers.
She will be selling and autographing copies of her book, "Dearest Audrey, An Unlikely Love Story," the true story of her aunt, who was an unmarried English professor at Mills College in Oakland when in 1956 she accepted a Fulbright grant to spend her sabbatical teaching at the University of Karachi in Pakistan. Audrey's experiences in Pakistan dramatically changed her life in ways that she never anticipated.
The authors' event begins with a Sisters in Crime Indie Authors Tell All Panel from noon to 1:30 p.m. This is followed by a Local Author Showcase from 2-4 p.m., sponsored by the California Writers Club Tri-Valley Branch. Twelve authors, including Eve Sprunt, will give short readings from their works. There will also be a DIY Zine Workshop for Teens from 2-4 p.m.
An Author Book Fair will take place from 3-4 p.m. with authors at the tables to sell their books or chat and answer questions.
