BOOK CLUB EXTRAORDINAIRE
Posted July 14, 2014on:
<em>Dr. Dale Glenn, author of <em>Purcell Station</em>, presented his debut novel to our book club Thursday evening. Eighty or so readers came for dinner with the author, a book presentation, Q and A time, and signing. This is one book that our members agreed on. We all loved it! Born in Knox County, this Hoosier went on to earn a doctorate and enjoy a career in education as a principal and professor at Indiana University.
Set in the fifties, the reader travels to a small town in southern Indiana where a young boy spends summers with his grandparents. While there, he embarks on many adventures as well as a mystery. A coming of age story, based on his own early teen years, Dale captures the spirit of small town life and love. We all hope for a sequel.
Our amazing book club formed in 2003 when Oprah encouraged women to join her in reading and discussing great books. We have met since then and invited an author every year, starting with James Alexander Thom in 2004. For this special night, we invite family and friends to join us for dinner with the author. Our community looks forward to this annual event. Thank you, Dr. Glenn, for your outstanding presentation.
