Author talk set for Gresham Library
The Gresham Library Pageturners book group will host Linda L. Graham, author of "Indiana Summer: From Cornfields and Lightning Bugs," from 2-3 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 7. Read the book and join a conversation about the work.
It examines Graham's growing up in Indiana during the 1950s and '60s, as she searches for approval and acceptance by classmates, teachers and family members.
Feeling isolated and often rejected, she turns to the magic and beauty of nature and animals, finding momentary companionship.
The library is at 385 N.W. Miller Ave. Call 503-988-5123 for more information.
