Theresa Wisner will hold a book launch party at the Newport Public Library on Sunday, March 17, at 1 p.m. She will read from her new book, “Daughter of Neptune,” a powerful memoir that has touched the hearts of both readers and reviewers.
Wisner follows in the wake of her fishing brothers to the far outposts of the world in an attempt to please her fishing father. With impeccable detail, Wisner paints a picture of life at sea from a young woman’s perspective. With courage and grit, she tells the story of addiction and recovery, and coming of age far later than most. “Daughter of Neptune” captures the beauty and the coarseness of a foreign world that creates the backdrop for healing.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. This event is free and open to the public.
The Newport Public Library is located at 35 NW Nye St.
