TUES NOV 14 ♦ 12:00 PM GUILD LUNCHEON in Fellowship Hall. Mary Lechleidner will be our speaker and the topic, The Process of Writing, Selling, and Publication and the “how-to” for anyone who is interested in writing a book today.

MARY is the author of several novels. Since she started writing in 1994, she had published 19 books in women’s fiction, both historical and contemporary, for several publishers, including St. Martin’s Press, Steeple Hill, and most recently, for Bethany House. Many have been translated into Dutch, German, Spanish, Italian and Russian. Her most recent trilogy, At Home in Trinity, chronicles the life and work of a 19th century midwife, and she will have one set of the trilogy to offer as a door prize for anyone who brings a canned good for the Food Pantry. She will also have a free copy of one of the books for the first 50 who attend.

All Guild Luncheons and Teas will be Pot Luck (with the exception of the March Luncheon and Fashion Show). Our Board meeting will be October 26 at 9:30 AM in the Library.
