The Promise of Lumby and Lumby on the Air

08/5/2013, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM



Join the fun!  Read this 5-book series, then join us for discussion and review on the 4th and 5th books at St. Bernard Village, 1606 Heern Dr., Jonesboro, AR.  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: #1 The Lumby Lines, #2 Stealing Lumby, #3 Lumby’s Bounty, #4 The Promise of Lumby & #5 Lumby on the Air) (Wednesday, August 5, 2013.  1:30-2:30 p.m., FREE, Presenter: Dr. Lina Owens)
