Event Reception Celebrating Julie Trimingham's Novel, Mockingbird
You're invited to an author reception at VB store owners Chuck & Dee Robinson's condo to celebrate local author Julie Trimingham's new novel, Mockingbird. The reception will feature appetizers and drinks and will be $10. Ticket proceeds will be donated to the Whatcom Literacy Council. Limited space is available to the reception.

After the reception, Julie will do a free author presentation in the VB Readings Gallery. Come listen to her discuss her book. In Mockingbird, the cry of an abandoned baby on the outskirts of an old Cuban town attracts the attention, and then cracks open the life, of a wandering tourist. Mia, an out-of-work actress whose life is adrift, finds herself filled with purpose as she looks for a place the baby can call home. As with any odyssey, the way home is filled with twists and turns. The baby comes down with an infection, for which medicine is unavailable. Mia's self-absorbed boyfriend threatens to derail all her well-intentioned efforts. A local musician proves helpful to Mia, though his help comes tangled up with desire. An approaching hurricane further complicates matters. As she falls more deeply in love with the baby, Mia makes increasingly drastic choices. Her fluency as an actress allows her to play a real life high-stakes role: she finds herself committing crimes for the sake of the child. As she says, "Legal and moral are hardly the same."

Julie Trimingham is an author and screenwriter. Her films have screened widely at festivals around the world. She writes, is a community activist, and lives with her family in the Northwest.
