A New York Times best selling author is coming to Red Deer.

Cathy Buchanan, author of The Day the Falls Stood Still and The Painted Girls, will speak at the Red Deer Public Library’s downtown branch on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in the Snell Auditorium. Admission is free.

Library staff member Mary Neely had invited Buchanan to meet with her small book club, Fireside Readers, via Skype several times and after these Internet meetings, the pair arranged for Buchanan to come to the library.

The author committed to the visit for no pay.

“Though I have yet to visit Red Deer in person, I feel a real kinship with the library. I’ve Skyped into the library’s book club meetings for both The Day the Falls Stood Still and The Painted Girls and have been delighted to meet such attentive, enthusiastic, curious readers. I’m very much looking forward to my in-person visit,” Buchanan said in a recent press release.
