Local author Joanie Ward Smith

HUNTINGTON — Bella Consignment is hosting a book launch for local author Joanie Ward Smith from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20.

“This event is part of our ongoing support of local authors and artists. Her book is an appealing and sometimes scandalous story set in both the after life and the land of the living. Focusing on the lives of two women who had a strained relationship with the truth, Joanie weaves an intriguing tale mixed with healing and hope,” said Bella Consignment owner Leslee Martin.

Ward Smith, a Huntington native, opened and operated Bella Consignment from 2002 to 2020. She is working on several endeavors, including a how-to book about resale stores and estate sales. Humorous and filled with helpful information, the book will be available in 2022.

Bella Consignment is located at 1104 20th St. in Huntington. It features furniture, home decor, clothing and accessories.
