Best Selling Author Margot Livesey 

Join us for a visit by best-selling author Margot Livesey on Thursday, November 2 at 4pm . She is in town for another event and I used my Iowa connection to woo her to visit the library. Unfortunately, the book sale is taking place which leaves us no place to host her in the library. Instead we'll meet in the Senior Center . Go in door #1 (R.I.P. Monty Hall) and the room will be on the right just inside. We plan to have copies of a couple of her latest books for sale which she will then sign. Margot was born in Scotland and has written 8 novels and other assorted non-fiction. She is currently on the faculty of the prestigious Iowa Writer's Workshop at the University of Iowa. Please join us at the Senior Center next door for this special author event!
