Author and BYU Alumnus, Liesa Swejkoski, will be at Pioneer Book store in Orem signing two of her books this Saturday at 2 p.m.
Swejkoski will be holding a book signing as well as discussing her books, “Lizzie’s Blue Ridge Memories” and her newest release, “A Sideshow Journey.”
David Smith, Swejkoski’s publisher, said “A Sideshow Journey” explains the family secret of Calliope Tiller. Calliope’s parents occupy rare careers and she tries to balance her “normal” world with her family life by attempting to keep secrets about her family. The book follows Calliope through her life journey of her heart and mind being shaped to find and accept her inner strength and the meaning of true beauty.
Swejkoski’s first novel, “Lizzie’s Blue Ridge Memories”, also follows the story of a girl’s journey through life.
Swejkoski is a Utah native and her books are written with children and adults in mind.
“The thing that I would like people to take away from my book is the desire and commitment to love and accept one another despite differences in age, disabilities and background,” Swejkoski said.
The book signing is open to anyone and is aimed towards aspiring authors and those who have a love for writing. Swejkoski will be open for questions and discussion.
“Liesa will be on hand to answer questions about writing and publishing,” Smith said. “She desires to connect with and inspire her audience.”
Published by Synergy Books, both of Swejkoski’s books are available in stores and also on Amazon’s Kindle library as well as other e-book locations.
Swejkoski is excited to come back to her home state to share her writing with BYU students and other Utahans.
“Liesa’s writing is natural, not contrived writing and offers a level of authenticity that makes the reading enjoyable and really paints a picture,” Smith said. “Among all books I have read, there are very few that touch a person in a way that reality can’t touch, this book encapsulates that feeling.”
