Author Sue Fagalde Lick of South Beach has published a new novel titled “Up Beaver Creek.” Set in a real-life community south of Newport, it follows the adventures of a woman who call herself P.D. Recently widowed, she has come west to start a new life as a musician, but things keep going wrong. And then the long-feared earthquake and tsunami hit.
A book launch celebration for “Up Beaver Creek” will take place Sunday, July 8, at 2 p.m. at the Newport Public Library. All are invited for readings and a conversation about the book and the publishing process.
The story involves a colorful cast of characters, including a mysterious artist who makes sculptures out of discarded junk, a jazz-loving taxi driver, a disturbingly friendly postmistress, old hippie musicians, and a ranger who promises to take P.D. kayaking up Beaver Creek.
