Parkplace Books to host book release party with art and music
January 24, 2013 · 1:42 PM
Parkplace Books will host a book release party for author Lisa Murphy and her second novel, “The Wyrmstone,” from 3-6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26 at 348 Parkplace Center.
The event will include a live performance of old-time music by artists Murphy & Middaugh. The musicians frequently play at the Urban Coffee Lounge in Kirkland.
Pastel artist Denise Hastings and photographers Lois Farrington and Janice Lovelace will also display some of their art during the event.
Murphy’s second novel, “The Wyrmstone” is an adult/teen novel and a magical realism tale about teen role-playing gamers trying to survive in a world in which their game, Age of Dragons, has come to life in Seattle.
Because much of the book is told from the point of view of an older sister trying to parent these youths, the book would also appeal to parents whose high school students are obsessed with “elves and dragons fantasy gaming.”
