Dozens of Islanders joined local author Nicole Galland at the Grange Hall last Wednesday night, July 10. Galland read from her new book “Godiva”. Contrary to rumors, she did not arrive naked on a horse, or on a horse at all. Galland, also the author of “The Fool’s Tale” and “I, Iago” did, however, sign copies of her books. The event was part of the West Tisbury Library’s ongoing Speakeasy series, which benefits the library’s construction project.

Godiva is available at Bunch of Grapes in Vineyard Haven and Edgartown Books. For more information on the West Tisbury Speakeasy project, visit
