Annual Meeting Guest Speaker

Katherine Longshore

THE NEWS IS OUT: The Guest Speaker for our upcoming Annual Meeting will be Katherine Longshore, author of GILT, a story of friendship and betrayal set in the court of Henry VIII; and TARNISH, the story of young Anne Boleyn.

Katherine grew up in Arcata. Attending HSU, she created her own major in Cross-cultural Studies and Communications, planning to travel and write. Forever. Four years, six continents and countless pairs of shoes later, she went to England for two weeks, stayed five years and discovered history. She now lives in another part of California with her husband and two children. She’s still writing.

Romantic Times commented regarding GILT, “Longshore takes readers into the dangerous and enchanting circle of Catherine Howard, the fifth wife of Henry VIII…this book’s look into courtly intrigue will delight teen readers.”

We invite our young friends to come and hear Katherine’s presentation, since the books are directed toward teenagers. Of course, adults enjoy them as well!

TARNISH will appear for the first time on June 18, so this would be a good time to have your “hot off the presses” copy autographed by the author!
