An Evening Filled with Hope with Wade Rouse

May 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

HOPE CHEST, THE

Wade Rouse is back in West Michigan this spring to share from his new book, The Hope Chest, which he wrote under the pen name Viola Shipman—a tribute to his grandmother and the woman who inspired his Heirloom Series. In The Hope Chest, wade weaves the tale of the lives of three people who deepen connections to one another—and find hope in the midst of overwhelming life changes—as they discover the contents and secrets of one woman’s hope chest. Wade will read from The Hope Chest and talk about why hope and sentimentality are important and yet so undervalued in literature today. The Hope Chest is the follow-up novel to The Charm Bracelet, which was named a 2017 Michigan Notable Book. A book signing will follow the presentation.
