The Edmonds Bookshop is hosting a book signing from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, for a New York author with local connections who has authored “Trafficked,” a book about modern-day domestic slavery.
Kim Purcell, daughter-in-law of local attorneys Doug Purcell and Florine Gingerich, will sign copies of book, her first published novel, aimed at young adults (ages 12 and up). The plot: “Stranded in a foreign land with false documents, no money, and nobody who can help her, Hannah must find a way to save herself from her new status as a modern-day slave or risk losing the one thing she has left: her life.”
According to the author’s website, she wrote the book after working as an ESL and writing teacher in South Central Los Angeles, where she met immigrant girls working for little or no pay.
The Edmonds Bookshop is located at 111 5th Ave. S.
