Wordfest Presents Jessica Waite

July 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$15 – $25

Wordfest is thrilled to be showcasing Jessica Waite and her no-holds-barred, sometimes wry, always moving memoir, The Widow’s Guide to Dead Bastards. The conversation, hosted by Ali Bryan, starts at 7 PM MT and includes an audience Q & A and book signing. Waite’s journey from emerging author to centerstage with one of 2024’s most highly anticipated new books is almost too good to be true. And now you have the power to put her on the bestseller lists by pre-ordering copies of the book here for pick-up at the show. Of course, Owl’s Nest Books will also have The Widow’s Guide to Dead Bastards for sale at the event, along with Bryan’s backlist.

We are grateful to Simon & Schuster Canada for making it possible to celebrate our hometown success story!
