P.E.O. Books ‘N Lunch event

Sandy Garvey

P.E.O. Chapter DM is presenting our seventh annual scholarship benefit, Books ‘N Lunch, to be held at Christ Presbyterian Church, 925 N. Sarival Avenue on Saturday, March 3, 2018, at 11:30 a.m. Many members of Chapter DM are your neighbors in PebbleCreek.

This year we have two dynamic local authors. Barbara Hinske is in her own words—“an incurable optimist, a Downton Abbey devotee and a slave to two dogs and her own historic home.” On her bucket list—to look at every item in Hobby Lobby. Barbara Hinske is the Amazon bestselling author of the Rosemont series and The Christmas Club. She is currently working on a mystery—think Wait Until Dark type suspense and not blood and guts. For further information about Barbara you can find her at www.barbarahinske.com.

Sylvia Nobel resides in Phoenix and is the author of the popular Kendall O’Dell mystery series. These suspense-filled novels are based on actual newspaper articles and T.V. news stories that she weaves together with her imagination to take flight. They feature a feisty flame-haired reporter, Kendall O’Dell. Sylvia helped produce a movie based on Deadly Sanctuary, her first book of the Kendall O’Dell mystery series. She is currently working on her sixth book. For more information about Sylvia you can find her at sylvianobel@cox.net.

This promises to be a stimulating and fun-filled event. Both authors will give brief talks about their backgrounds and will take questions afterward.

P.E.O. is a philanthropic organization where women celebrate the advancement of women.

We help educate women through scholarships, grants, loans and stewardship of Cottey College. We work to motivate women to achieve their highest aspirations.
