If you are thinking about writing a book and publishing it, Friends of Murphy Library invite you to meet one of Murphy’s newest authors, Jane Hembree. She will talk about the lessons she has learned creating and publishing her first book, next Tuesday, May 23 at the Friends’ Potluck at 6 p.m. in the library’s meeting room.

Hembree knows how to find her way through strange surroundings. After all, she lived around the world from Japan to Brazil with her husband Steve and their children during his military career. She also found her way home to Murphy and has filled her days helping local organizations like Friends of Murphy Library and Silver Arts in the Senior Games.

Recently she and Steve added a new member to their family, a puppy they named Beemer, and she began taking photos as he grew. The result is her children’s book, Beemer’s Adventures. Hembree will share her own adventures in writing it.

The cost of membership in the Friends is $10 per year. This nonprofit group raises funds to benefit the library. Everyone is welcome to bring a favorite potluck dish to share. Call 837-2417.

Join Jane and Beemer and learn how to publish your own story!
