A Book Launch and a Poetry Reading #TuesdayTidbit #Events #Inspiration

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

 

 

 

Today, I have two exciting announcements to make. First of all, last Thursday, Behind Our Eyes, a writers’ organization to which I belong, sponsored an event to promote my new book Why Grandma Doesn’t Know Me. Carol Farnsworth, author of Leaf Memories, a poetry collection I reviewed here, did an excellent job interviewing me in front of a live virtual audience. This was followed by plenty of questions from participants and  lively discussion. You can click the link below to hear a recording of the program.

 

My BOE Book Launch

 

Also, I’ll again be participating in the WyoPoets monthly virtual poetry reading, which will take place this coming Sunday, February 13th, at 5 p.m. mountain time. You’re all invited, even if you just want to listen to poetry. Please see below for details. I hope you can come.

 

WyoPoets is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

 

This event is open to anyone who wants to share or listen to poetry. You don’t have to be a member of WyoPoets, you don’t even have to be in Wyoming to participate. So, feel free to invite your friends!

New! Why Grandma Doesn’t Know Me

Copyright 2021 by Abbie Johnson Taylor.

Independently published with the help of DLD Books.

Front cover image contains: elderly woman in red sweater sitting next to a window.

Sixteen-year-old Natalie’s grandmother, suffering from dementia and confined to a wheelchair, lives in a nursing home and rarely recognizes Natalie. But one Halloween night, she tells her a shocking secret that only she and Natalie’s mother know. Natalie is the product of a one-night stand between her mother, who is a college English teacher, and another professor.

After some research, Natalie learns that people with dementia often have vivid memories of past events. Still not wanting to believe what her grandmother has told her, she finds her biological father online. The resemblance between them is undeniable. Not knowing what else to do, she shows his photo and website to her parents.

Natalie realizes she has some growing up to do. Scared and confused, she reaches out to her biological father, and they start corresponding.

Her younger sister, Sarah, senses their parents’ marital difficulties. At Thanksgiving, when she has an opportunity to see Santa Claus, she asks him to bring them together again. Can the jolly old elf grant her request?
