Author Caroline Woodward visited the Fernie Heritage Library last week for a reading and signing of her book.

On Wednesday evening, Woodward stopped by the library to read from her latest novel, Penny Loves Wade, Wade Loves Penny, published by Fernie’s Oolichan Books.

The book is a contemporary story about middle-aged love enduring despite prolonged separations. The story winds around Penny Toland, resolute ranch wife and part-time teacher, and her husband, Wade, reluctant rancher and good man, adrift behind the wheel of his long-haul truck.

The reading and book signing was supported by the Kootenay Library Federation, The Canada Council, The Canada Book Fund and BC Arts Council.
