Hooverville with Kayla Joy | Orca Books Co-op
July 16 at 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDTFree
Join us for a virtual event with Olympian author Kayla Joy as we discuss her new novel, Hooverville.
Annaleise Winston can never seem to fit in with the Society Girls, the strict rules that govern them, or their selfish indulgence during the midst of the Great Depression. Behind closed doors, her publicly perfect new fiance, Frank Alexander, is violent and dismissive, but without his financial security, Annaleise and her mother will be on the streets with not a penny to their name.
When Annaleise finally has enough, she runs away and accidentally becomes stranded in a Hooverville, a lawless homeless encampment in Central Park, where she must keep her identity a secret if she wants to stay alive. But a kind shoe shiner named Thomas Kelley may get in the way of everything she thought she ever wanted. As their love for each other grows, the Great Depression worsens, and Frank will pay any price to bring back his bride.
Kayla Joy is an author and artist living in the Pacific Northwest with her many animals. At 21, she has already self-published two books: Morbid Tales from Behind the Mirror (available on Amazon now) and her first novel, Hooverville. You can follow her journey at kaylajoybooks.com.
