Mission author to sign copies of her first book

Wendy Fraser will be at Totally Book-ish in the Junction Mall on Nov. 21

Beside the River, the debut novel of local author Wendy Fraser will be available at Totally Book-ish, a locally-run bookstore located in the Junction Mall at #344 – 32555 London Ave. in Mission.

On Thursday, Nov. 21, Fraser will be at the store for a book signing event. The signing takes place from 3 to 6 p.m.

Fraser’s story takes place in a small riverside town (Mission) during the 1930s. It’s a story about struggles, love, scandal and poverty and a mixture of fact and fiction that reaches across the divide of social class with well developed characters and a feel-good ending.

Fraser lived, and went to both elementary and high school, in Mission and later attended UFV. She resides in the Fraser Valley with her spouse and youngest of three daughters, along with their dog Watson.

Fraser is working on her next book which is scheduled for release in the new year.
