SEASIDE — Join the Seaside Public Library for two upcoming author events.

At 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, Manzanita author Mark Scott Smith will speak about his historical novel “The Osprey and the Sea Wolf.”

Smith spent 40 years doing academic medical writing before he turned to historical fiction. This is his second novel.

Then, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, author Christopher Sandford tells the story of “The Man Who Would Be Sherlock: The Real-Life Adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle,” and the author’s own association with some of the most gruesome crimes of the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

Sandford is the author of 19 books and has written for many prominent publications.

Both events take place in the library’s Community Room and are sponsored by the Friends of the Seaside Library.

The Seaside Public Library is at 1131 Broadway St. For more information, call 503-738-6742 or visit seasidelibrary.org.
