Roanoke author Barbara Dickinson will read from and sign her new book Rose in Charge, the fourth in her Rose McNess series. The mystery is set in the town of East Plumley in the British Isles. Her protagonist is "a lot like me," says Dickinson, "willing to jump in and take chances." A former art teacher and founder of the Roanoke Sidewalk Art Sale, Dickinson's art has graced the cover of each of her books. Books can be purchase in advanced at Book No Further or at the event.
