Dorothy Brutger, Stacy Brutger, and Lona Brutger were guest speakers at the Eden Valley Area Library Tuesday evening, July 23. Dorothy and Lona had traveled to France and Italy, including the Côte d’Azur, in April this year, and each put together a book of photos and description of their travels. They shared a slide show of their trip, their books, and some Italian chocolate.
Stacy has written 15 or so books and has published three so far. She reads thousands of books and was told, as a rule of thumb, one must write 3 million words before one is any good as a writer. (Her 15 books comprise more than 3 millions words so far.) She shared her writing process, and brought door prizes as well.
The event was sponsored by the Eden Valley Area Public Library, in the Event Center, and the Friends of the Library served refreshments. Staff photo by Jean Doran Matua.
