Stanislaus Reads and Writes

Stanislaus Reads and Writes image

In 2014, local authors collaborated to write a community novel, Ashes in a Teardrop. The novel begins when a young couple stumbles across an abandoned teardrop trailer during a weekend bike ride along the Tuolumne River. What follows is a suspenseful mystery set against the familiar landscape of Stanislaus County.

The novel and author biographies are available here.
