Local Author's Luncheon Set

Submitted by Jodi Hall

Mark your calendar for the 14th annual Local Author's Luncheon to benefit the Forest City Library, which will be held at Elkview Country Club, Crystal Lake, on Wednesday, October 12.

This year's luncheon will be held in memory of Diana Junior who recently passed away. Diana served as the librarian at Forest City for 33 years prior to her retirement in 2020.

This year's author is Kelly Ann Hopkins, high school librarian and creative writing teacher at Lackawanna Trail High School. She is the author of Gulf of Deception (Gulf Shores Mysteries), High Vices and Buried Beneath.

The annual luncheon is sponsored by the Novel Woman Book Club with all proceeds going to the Forest City Library, a branch of the Susquehanna County Library System. A time of hospitality starts at 11:30am followed by the luncheon and speaker. The cost of the luncheon is $25. An annual raffle in conjunction with the luncheon gives us the opportunity to raise more funds for the library.

Watch for more information on making your reservation for the luncheon in future editions of your local Transcript.
