Twin Hickory Area Library
TW Meeting Room
Come see Carole Louie, author of Conversations with a Hungry Ghost: Memoir of a Reluctant Medium. This book is more than just a ghost story. After a lifetime of blocking the ghosts who tried to talk to her, Carole found the courage to overcome her fear to speak with her father’s ghost. Their conversations helped Carole understand her father’s reluctance to share his story about his journey from China to the U.S. and guided her to the Louie family ancestral villages. It was the beginning of a spiritual journey of healing and exploration into the teachings of reincarnation. Read, discuss, and connect with other writers and readers in our community.

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
New Fairfield Area Library
FA Large Conference Room
Come see Connie Kuykendall, author of Love Ain't No Soap Opera. It’s Mayberry meets Daytime Drama! A curvy Southern soap fan falls for a bad boy soap heartthrob in this Christian romance seasoned with humor and Southern charm. Connie Kuykendall writes to empower and uplift women struggling with their body image and faith. Her dream is that one person who reads her work will look in the mirror and, instead of repeating her daily "I'm so ugly, I'm so fat" mantra, say, "I am so loved." God has shown her that, through writing, He can turn broken pieces and broken people--like a mosaic made of shattered glass and stone--into something beautiful.
