Dania Tomlinson will present her first novel, Our Animal Hearts, a work of historical fiction set in a small orcharding community on the shores of Okanagan Lake. The novel takes readers to a small village in British Columbia, at the turn of the 20th century that is perched on a lake made famous by the monster said to haunt its depths.
