Run on over tomorrow morning to Reach a Reader Bookstore in Sioux Falls for their July sale. Located at 101 N. Minnesota Ave (on the lower level of Canfield Interiors), this inspiring bookstore supports adult literacy programs (and appreciates their many volunteers).

I am happy to have the opportunity to be there also for a book signing of my career memoir, Caring Lessons: A Nursing Professor’s Journey of Faith and Self (Deep River Books, 2010), from 9-12noon.

All proceeds go to TANA, the Trinity (Christian College) Alumni Nursing Association. I will also have a few copies of the story of our move to South Dakota last summer–Starting Over at Seventy-four: From a Chicago High Rise to a Sioux Falls Twin Home.

I want to add a huge thanks, today, to all the new followers of this blog. Since being featured recently as an Editor’s Pick by WordPress, the readership here has more than doubled. I am grateful to each one of you. And have appreciated getting acquainted with your blogs and reading your stories from around the world. I especially like the theme that we all care about each other. You’ve inspired me, and I hope to keep inspiring you! Again–thank you!


Advance notice: An anthology of essays written on “transitions” for this Write-by-the-Lake Writer’s Workshop & Retreat will be published late this fall by our teacher, Amy Lou Jenkins, at Jack Walker Press. As students, we are a part of this daunting, but exciting, process. I will keep you informed of our progress!
