Author Week Kick-Off With A Special Event

Welcome to author week.

Reading is one thing that brings me joy.  While married, I did not do a lot of reading  so I am making up for lost time.

Every day will be a review of a recent book.  It is my hope that you will find these reviews helpful and enlightening.

I am going to start author week off with an announcement of a special event, hosted by local author Nanci Gravill,  for visitors to and/or residents of Northeast Ohio.

Nanci’s book is wonderful and filled with lots of resources for life’s ups and downs.   I hope if you are in the area on October 25th you will attend the event.

Special Author Talk + Book Signing ~ October 25

On Thursday, October 25, I will share stories, thoughts, and wisdom at the Gathering Place’s Westlake location at 6:30 p.m. Soon I’ll be a nine-year breast cancer survivor so you’ll learn the influence cancer had on my life and how I came to write my first book Fresh Hope … Cleveland: Resources to Help You Navigate through Unsettled Times. It’s a book that can be a blessing to each of us traveling life’s highway. Join us in a comfortable living room setting at the Gathering Place West followed by a book signing with books and literature for sale (books: $20 cash or check to: Fresh Hope LLC). Everyone is welcome whether your life has been touched by cancer or not. ~ Author, Nanci J. Gravill

~ Never Heard of The Gathering Place? The Gathering Place is a caring community for those touched by cancer.

If you are in treatment, actively supporting someone with cancer, dealing with emotional/physical effects of treatment, or grieving the loss of someone from cancer you and a friend will enjoy Nanci’s talk on this Thursday evening. If you’re a cancer survivor or interested in the facility and/or my book, we’d love to have you on October 25 as well.
