Friends of the Library's Author’s Night

The Friends of the Greenville Public Library’s first Author’s Night 2018 is Friday January 26th at Montage Cafe in downtown Greenville! Doors open at 6:00 and the program starts at 7:00. Come early for a nice supper and the groovy music of Bill Westfall and J.R. Price. Our first author is Dana Brown who won a Silver Medal at the Florida Authors and Publishers 2017 Presidential Awards on August 5th for her first novel Lottie Loser.

Dana shares “One day an idea for a book started to form in my mind, and for the next two years, whenever my husband and I were riding bikes, my debut novel Lottie Loser was written...at least in my head! After years in a very fulfilling job in banking, I realized that if I wanted my book to be a reality I would need to devote myself to getting the words out of my head and on to paper, so I retired early and became a fulltime author.”

Dana and her husband reside in Indiana but love traveling to the “laid-back islands of Florida.“ They have three daughters who support her writing. “I am currently working on the sequel Call Me Charlotte and have a plot in mind for at least one more book about Lottie, her relationships and how she deals with the ups and downs of life.”

Dana visited the Library last summer and is seen with Librarian Rachel Brock and her first novel!
