Amy Stewart, Humboldt County’s best-selling local author (and co-owner of Eureka Books), has a new book out this fall: Girl Waits With Gun. GWWG, as we’ve been referring to it, is a novel that begins with a crash. A speeding automobile destroyed their horse-drawn carriage in 1914, and what should have been a simple traffic accident led to blackmail, kidnapping threats, and a shoot-out, all of which actually happened. We’ll have signed copies for sale on the publication date, September 1. Amy will give a talk and a reading at the Eureka Theater on October 3 (during Arts Alive).
