Two area authors read tonight in Grass Valley

Two free area readings will be held tonight in Grass Valley.

As part of a national book tour, Nevada City author Wylene Dunbar will read from her new novel, “My Life with Corpses,” at The Book Seller, beginning at 6:30.

“My Life with Corpses” is about a Kansas farm girl named Oz, raised by a family of corpses.

She survives her quirky upbringing due to Mr. Stark, a neighbor who rescues her from her family’s mysterious life. When Mr. Stark dies years later, his casket is empty except for a copy of Oz’s memoir, “My Life with Corpses.” Oz returns home to shed light on this strange occurrence and reflects on her childhood and what it really means to live.

The Book Seller is at 107 Mill St. Call 272-2131 for more information.

Chris Enss, who co-wrote “The Cowboy and the Senorita” with Howard Kazanjian, will talk at Odyssey Books, beginning at 7.

Released on May 1, “The Cowboy and the Senorita” is the true story of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, a couple who with their faith intact triumphantly rose above severe misfortunes and made 33 movies, produced and starred in a 10-year hit television series, and raised nine children.

The Grass Valley-based Enss and the Southern California-based Kazanjian are now working on making the book into a movie.

Odyssey Books is at 11989 Sutton Way in Grass Valley.

Call the bookstore at 477-2856 for more information.
