AUTHOR TALK 
featuring local writer 
JILL HANNAH ANDERSON
THURSDAY, AUGUST 17
6:30-7:30 p.m.
All Welcome! 
Refreshments served!
 
 

Anderson's novel The To-Hell-and-Back Club debuted in May to rave reviews. It is the story of Peyton Brooks and the friends she meets along the way in a fictitious Minnesota town. It is a story of loss and and hope and a story of grief and the power of friendship. Anderson will be on hand to speak about the inspiration for her novel and plans for future tales.  Her books are available at the Library for purchase ($17.17 including tax) and she will be happy to sign the books at her Library speaking engagement.Grab a friend (or two, or three!) and come out for a night to celebrate Jill's literary success. 


 

You may remember, Jill authored the piece about the Women of the JFHML for a Her Voice feature, "Helping Hands at Hallett" in the Spring of 2015.
