Zan Jarvis To Speak at Fayetteville Library 14 January 2018

Novel by Arkansas author Zan Jarvis.

Local author Zan Jarvis is the featured speaker for Fayetteville Library’s “Second Sunday” authors’ presentation at 2 p.m., January 14, 2018 in the Walker Community Room. She will speak about her novel River and the Lost.

Fourteen-year old River gets a message from the Spirit World that she must recover “lost treasure.”  Without knowing what she seeks, she embarks on a journey into an unknown realm. As the tale unfolds, River finds she is the only hope for energizing the ancient birthright-power of all things female and restoring wholeness to our natural world.

Jarvis has been a Fayetteville resident since 1978.

After her talk, her books will be available for sales and signing. Admission is free and open to the public.
