The Kennewick Library will host Kelli Estes, who grew up in Eastern Washington. Her novel, The Girl Who Wrote in Silk, is called brilliant, poignant, and vibrant, by critics. Based on real historical events, the novel revolves around two young women, one a Chinese American girl of the late 1890s and the other a young woman who returns to Orcas Island and finds a piece of silk that leads her to unfold the tragic history of the Chinese in Seattle.
