Author Event | Sarah Zettel: An Exchange of Two Flowers


Monday June 25, 2018: 7:00pm to 8:30pm


Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room


Join local author Sarah Zettel for a reading from her new historical fiction novella, "An Exchange of Two Flowers". A self-confessed stone-cold history geek, Sarah explores the connection between tea and the rise of empires. Set in 1839 China, this gripping story combines careful research with a dramatic narrative that follows the ambitions and trials of two men from two different cultures, locked together by a strange combination of struggle and common cause. Both seek to end one of history’s most infamous smuggling trades, prevent a war, and succeed in worlds that reward complacency. Discussion to follow. Snacks and organic tea will be served.  Presented in partnership with Arbor Teas' Summer Reading Series and the AADL Summer Game.
