SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- Wanda Brunstetter, the West Valley author of nearly 90 books with more than 10 million copies sold, will meet fans at the Sunnyside Community Library on Wednesday and the West Valley Community Library on Thursday.

Brunstetter will be at the Sunnyside library at 621 Grant Ave. from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday as part of the next Authors Out Loud event held by Yakima Valley Libraries.

She will visit the West Valley Community Library at 7 p.m. Thursday. The library is located at 223 S. 72nd Ave.

An award-winning Amish romance novelist, Brunstetter will talk about her writing influences, a preview of some of her newest titles and will allow time for audience questions, said Krystal Corbray, programming and marketing librarian for Yakima Valley Libraries.

“Wanda really is a powerhouse in her genre, and is widely considered to be one of the founders of Amish romance fiction,” Corbray said in a news release.

“Being able to host her for two events is really exciting for us, especially since she’s a nationally known author who lives right here in the Yakima Valley.”

A book signing will follow each of her talks, with books available for purchase, courtesy of Inklings Bookshop. Both events are free.

Brunstetter’s latest book, “The Farmers’ Market Mishap,” comes out in June.
