        WAHHI Author Series Presents

         Author Dianna Rostad

        Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 4:45 pm 

        WAHHI welcomes Dianna Rostad to discuss her book, YOU BELONG HERE NOW.

        In this brilliant debut, three children take the orphan train from New York City to the Big Sky Country of Montana, hoping for a better life where beautiful wild horses roam free.

        Montana: 1925. An Irish boy orphaned by Spanish flu, a tiny girl who won’t speak, and a volatile young man who lies about his age to escape Hell’s Kitchen, are paraded on train platforms across the Midwest to work-worn folks. They journey countless miles, racing the sun westward.

        Before they reach the last rejection and stop, the oldest, Charles, comes up with a daring plan, and alone, they set off toward the Yellowstone River and grassy mountains where the wild horses roam.

        Fate guides them toward the ranch of a family stricken by loss. Nara, the daughter of a successful cattleman, has grown into a brusque spinster who refuses the kids on sight. She’s worked hard to gain her father’s respect and hopes to run their operation, but if the kids stay, she’ll be stuck in the kitchen.

        Nara works them without mercy, hoping they’ll run off, but they buck up and show spirit, and though Nara will never be motherly, she begins to take to them. So, when Charles is jailed for freeing wild horses that were rounded up for slaughter, and an abusive mother from New York shows up to take the youngest, Nara does the unthinkable, risking everything she holds dear to change their lives forever.

        WAHHI Presents A Special Event

         Author Ramie Liddle

        Thursday, October 21, 2021 at 5:00 pm 


        When Miss Norma was diagnosed with uterine cancer, she was advised to undergo surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. But instead of confining herself to a hospital bed for what could be her last stay, Miss Norma—newly widowed after nearly seven decades of marriage—rose to her full height of five feet and told the doctor, “I’m ninety years old. I’m hitting the road.” 

        And so Miss Norma took off on an unforgettable around-the-country journey in a thirty-six-foot motor home with her retired son Tim, his wife Ramie, and their dog Ringo. 

        Infused with this irrepressible nonagenarian’s wisdom, courage, and generous spirit, Driving Miss Norma is the charming, infectiously joyous chronicle of their experiences on the road. It portrays a transformative journey of living life on your own terms that shows us it is never too late to begin an adventure, inspire hope, or become a trailblazer.

        About the author


        Ramie Liddle is a modern-day nomad who retired at age 50 to travel around the United States and Baja California in a 19’ Airstream trailer with her husband, Tim Bauerschmidt, and their Standard Poodle. Ramie’s way of life changed suddenly when her father-in-law died in the summer of 2015. Two days later, his wife of 67 years, Norma, was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Norma refused treatment and the care-free trio suddenly became mobile assisted-living adventurers, taking Norma on the ride of her life! After accidentally creating a following of over 500,000 Facebook followers, Ramie coauthored with Tim the best-selling book “Driving Miss Norma: An Inspirational Story About What Really Matters at the End of Life.” She is currently a sought-after keynote speaker, widely regarded for her authenticity and insight into caregiving and what matters at the end of life.

        WAHHI Author Series Presents

         Author Marie Benedict

        Thursday, November 11, 2021 at 4:45 pm 

        WAHHI welcomes Marie Benedict to discuss her New York Times bestseller, The Personal Librarian.

        In her twenties, Belle da Costa Greene is hired by J. P. Morgan to curate a collection of rare manuscripts, books, and artwork for his newly built Pierpont Morgan Library. Belle becomes a fixture in New York City society and one of the most powerful people in the art and book world, known for her impeccable taste and shrewd negotiating for critical works as she helps create a world-class collection.

        But Belle has a secret, one she must protect at all costs. She was born not Belle da Costa Greene but Belle Marion Greener. She is the daughter of Richard Greener, the first Black graduate of Harvard and a well-known advocate for equality. Belle’s complexion isn’t dark because of her alleged Portuguese heritage that lets her pass as white—her complexion is dark because she is African American.

        The Personal Librarian tells the story of an extraordinary woman, famous for her intellect, style, and wit, and shares the lengths she must go to—for the protection of her family and her legacy—to preserve her carefully crafted white identity in the racist world in which she lives.

        About the author

        MARIE BENEDICT is a lawyer with more than ten years' experience as a commercial litigator at two of the country's premier law firms. While practicing as a NYC lawyer, Marie dreamed of a fantastical job unearthing the hidden historical stories of women -- and finally found it when she tried her hand at writing. She embarked on a new, thematically connected series of historical fiction excavating the stories of important, complex and fascinating women from the past with THE OTHER EINSTEIN, which tells the tale of Albert Einstein's first wife, a physicist herself, and the role she might have played in his theories. She then released CARNEGIE'S MAID, the story of a brilliant woman who may have spurred Andrew Carnegie toward philanthropy, followed by the NYTimes bestseller THE ONLY WOMAN IN THE ROOM, the tale of the Golden Age of Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr who made a world-changing invention, and LADY CLEMENTINE about Winston Churchill's wife. Her latest book -- THE MYSTERY OF MRS. CHRISTIE -- focuses on the real-life disappearance of Agatha Christie and the role it played in shaping her into the world's most successful novelist.
