New Books

In Woman's World, April 10 issue, two new books are highlighted in the What to watch, read and do this week! section. One book is I Heard That Song Before by prolific writer, Mary Higgins Clark. The other new book on the market put out by Holly Kennedy is called The Penny Tree. The Penny Tree is Kennedy's second novel.

Just a little note to say we had a wonderful time with Gwen Roland yesterday. She held our interest talking about her life and showing us photos of her life on a houseboat in the Louisiana swamp. Photos of her life then are featured in National Geographic, in the September 1979 and January 2004 issues.
