Event Details

The Lumby Lines, by Gail Fraiser

06/5/2013, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM


Join Dr. Lina Owen’s in a review of The Lumby Lines.  Read the first novel in this 5-book series and join the fun!  The author states about her work, “…Lumby, and its valleys, streets and townsfolk, are an escape—a gentle, quirky sanctuary from life’s harsher realities—because at the heart of the town I have authored is decency and honorableness of good people who are carving out the best lives they know how.  It is a town that is reminiscent of yesteryear, a community as it was intended to be—caring, forthright and authentic.  And within that wonderful place, humor is a mainstay and an antidote...where moral compass usually points due north.” (Series: #2 Stealing Lumby, #3 Lumby’s Bounty, #4 The Promise of Lumby & #5 Lumby on the Air) (Wednesday, June 5, 2013.  1:30-2:30 p.m., FREE, Dr. Lina Owens)
