Virtual - What's on Your TBR pile? with author Sarah Penner *For Adults
Wednesday, October 5, 2022
We're thrilled with this monthly series - What's On Your TBR Pile? - with some of our favorite authors! TBR is "to be read" and we all have stacks we know we can't read in our lifetime. But, with a little help from our favorite authors, we can refine or (goodness!) add to our piles. Today we hear from author Sarah Penner, author of the fabulous "The Lost Apothecary". Wonder what she's read and loved lately? Join us!
The way it works - we'll spend some time with Sarah hearing all about her favorite books and authors. Then, we'll have a few minutes to hear all about her latest and upcoming projects - it's a total win-win for us! Bring a pen and paper, you'll be wanting to write down all of Sarah's's recs.
I was born and raised in northeast Kansas, growing up in a small log cabin nestled deep in the woods. This picturesque retreat, where I lived until early adulthood, frames most of my early memories. I began writing seriously in 2015, after attending a moving lecture given by Elizabeth Gilbert. She was on tour for Big Magic, a game-changing book for creatives. Soon after her talk, I enrolled in my first online creative writing class. I haven't looked back since.
I'm an avid traveler, though my heart is stuck in London. Other favorite destinations include Thailand, Ireland, Germany, Belize, and Grand Cayman. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in finance. In early 2021, after thirteen years in corporate America, I left my day job. I'm thrilled now to call myself a full-time writer. When I'm not at the keyboard, you'll likely find me in the kitchen, the yoga studio, or running outdoors in the Florida heat. I'm married to my best friend, Marc. We're proud residents of the Sunshine State, where we live with our "silky hair" miniature dachshund, Zoe.
