Hot off the Press

Conversations Between Two Great FriendsConversations Between Two Great Friends, by Nancy L. Reed, relates the heart-to-hearts between two ladies of a certain age. The tenor of their discussions ranges from happy to sad, giddy to serious, philosophical to scientific. Their favorite coffee house waitperson, mysteriously mute, and a grieving ghost punctuate their conversations. Spanning from Christmas to Christmas, the reader eavesdrops on the private chats of the friends who reflect both Victorian sensibilities and twenty-first-century attitudes. Nan will be reading and signing her books at Lincoln Park Emporium July 22 from 1:00-3:00. Available on Amazon. See more member books in our library.
