5-8 p.m. Paddy Eger will read from and sign copies of her new young adult novel, “Tasman – An Innocent Convict’s Struggle for Freedom.” In 1850, 16-year-old Irish lad Ean McCloud, steps off the boat – his legs in iron shackles – and steps into serving a three-year sentence at the Port Arthur Penal Colony in Tasmania. Falsely convicted, he must now survive the brutal conditions, the backbreaking labor and time in a silent prison – a place that breaks men’s souls. Edmonds Bookshop, 111 Fifth Ave. S, Edmonds.
