Christina Baker Kline

Benjamin Kitchen
2 p.m., Saturday August 16

If you enjoyed the No. 1 “New York Times” bestselling novel “Orphan Train,” then stop by the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. Author Christina Baker Kline will talk about her life and literary works at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 16, at the Main Library in the Reading Garden Lounge.

“Orphan Train” is the story of two very different women who build an unexpected friendship: Vivian Day, a 91-year-old woman with a hidden past as an orphan-train rider, and Molly Ayer, whose troubled adolescence leads her to seek answers to questions no one has ever thought to ask.

Kline is a novelist, nonfiction writer and editor. In addition to “Orphan Train,” her novels include “Bird in Hand,” “The Way Life Should Be,” “Desire Lines” and “Sweet Water.” She served as Writer-in-Residence at Fordham University from 2007 to 2011 and was an on-staff editor and writing coach at the social networking site SheWrites.com.

A book signing follows Kline’s talk. Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Joseph-Beth Booksellers. This program was sponsored by the Friends of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.
