Author Event: Vicki Tapia

Banner for the Author Event featuring Vicki Tapia and her book, Maggie,  at This House of Books, the community-owned independent bookstore and tea shop in downtown Billings, Montana

Member-owner Vicki Tapia will be at the store on Saturday, May 19, beginning at 5:00 to talk about and read from her book, Maggie, then lead a brief discussion with the audience and answer questions before signing copies of her books for anyone who so wishes.

Set in a time when women had few rights, this compelling narrative chronicles one woman's emotional journey from abuse to independence. This is a #MeToo story that has waited over a century to be told.

Mt. Clemens, Michigan, 1887. Seventeen and headstrong, with marriage on her mind, the title character is sure she has found her one true love. But when she collides head-on with betrayal, overwhelming loss, and ill-treatment, her life unravels.

Maggie rises above adversity through rare determination and grit, becoming an independent woman ahead of her time. Yet before she can truly find peace, one heartbreaking, life-altering decision remains.

Inspired by her great-grandmother's life, the author weaves a timeless story of survival and courage set against the backdrop of Mt. Clemens, Michigan and the prairies of eastern Montana at the turn of the twentieth century.
