‘Orphan Train’ author to visit Cuesta College

New York Times bestselling author Christina Baker Kline, author of “Orphan Train,” will speak at Cuesta College on Nov. 4.

The event, hosted by Friends of Cuesta College Library, is a fundraiser for the college’s 2015 Book of the Year program.

Kline will read from her historical fiction novel at 6 p.m. on the main stage of the Cultural and Performing Arts Center. The book tells the story of the unlikely friendship that develops between a foster teen and an elderly widow.

“We hope this will be the beginning of a trend of having authors come to Cuesta College and speak about their books on a regular basis,” said Carina Love, Book of the Year committee chairwoman.
