Waucoma Bookstore and AniChe Cellars are hosting Hood River author Tim Schell for a book talk on Thursday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. at AniChe Cellars Tasting Room in Hood River, 301 Oak St. Schell will be discussing his new book, “Road to the Sea.”
About the Book
In this story of newfound love and love discarded, reminiscent of some of Graham Greene’s novels, Schell takes us to Central Africa where a young American, an African prostitute and the 17-year-old daughter of American Baptist missionaries are on the run from the police and other threats. While the novel dramatizes a suspenseful adventure of danger, escape and death, the intense action engages questions of love, loyalty and belief.
