“Becoming Beatrice” A Novel

frances wood

Author Frances Wood has written a novel about a young lady, a recent college graduate from Oakland, California, who takes a job teaching school in 19th-century Snohomish. Even more fun, she stayed in the upstairs front bedroom of the Blackman House Museum — when it was the home of Ella and Hycranus Blackman.

Frances will be reading and signing copies of Becoming Beatrice in the museum on Sunday, October 21, from 1-3p. The reading is hosted by the Snohomish Historical Society and is free.

Read more about the historical background to Frances’s story, which is fiction but based on her family.
