Texas author to discuss historical novel debut at Lakeshore library

SPECIAL TO THE PICAYUNE

BUCHANAN DAM — Texas author Julie Kibler will discuss her historical novel debut at the Lakeshore Branch Library on Oct. 25 as part of October Book Festival.

The program is 2:30 p.m. at the library, 7346 Texas 261. Admission is four non-perishable food items (protein products are encouraged.)

Kibler began writing “Calling Me Home” after learning a bit of family lore, according to a library news release. As a teen, her paternal grandmother fell in love with a young black man, but their families tore them apart. Kibler, in alternating first-person narratives, tells the story of forbidden love and unexpected friendships over a span of six decades.

Reservations for the program are suggested. Call (325) 379-1174.
