A look into the enthralling world of ‘The Orchardist’

The best first novel I’ve read this fall is Amanda Coplin’s “The Orchardist,” a story set in Washington’s apple orchard country before the age of cars, electricity and refrigeration. It’s a story of a man who befriends two runaway teenaged girls, and finds both family and a world of hurt.

Coplin, who is 31, grew up near Wenatchee. She discusses her inspiration and good fortune in having her first novel published to critical acclaim on tonight’s episode of “Well Read,” the books and authors program on state public access channel TVW. It airs at 7 and 10 p.m. Tuesdays, and at 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays on Tacoma public television station KTBC.

Or you can watch it here:

Earlier this month, I interviewed Coplin about her life’s work. Here’s a review of the book.
