Authors in the Afternoon with Roslyn B. Wilder: Empyreal Nights
Local author Rosyln B. Wilder will appear at the Fort Smith Public Library to promote and sign copies of her new book, Empyreal Nights. Growing up in her secluded community in the Garden of Eden, Iris heard myths about monsters outside. As a princess it was her job to put them to the test when her homeland starts mysteriously dying. Upon venturing out, Iris and her group of companions face unimaginable terrors worse than any of the myths, but a group of angels known as the Watchers come to their aid. The handsome leader, Orion, disagrees with Iris about what they should do, and it seems like the two would always be at odds. But neither are prepared for their alliance to fan the embers of what can exile the Watchers—love. Roslyn Beth Wilder was raised in southwest Arkansas and she’s been spinning faraway stories ever since. She received her B.A. in English from Henderson State University. When she isn’t writing, she enjoys playing The Legend of Zelda, binge watching true crime documentaries, reading, traveling, and working in the Library’s Genealogy Department. Roslyn currently lives in northwest Arkansas with her son and two cats, and dreams of her next adventure. Copies of Empyreal Nights will be available for sale and signing at this open-house style event.
