Lona Root Haskins, a member of GCWA, has been invited to speak Friday, Sept 14th at 1:00 at Lakes Regional Library.
Lona came to the literary world very late in life. In 2014 at age 79 she published her collection of grief poetry, Grief to Celebration: The Journey Through the Loss of My daughter, Dianna Louise. In 2015 at age 80 she published her parents’ memoir, Humble Roots: Earl and Caroline. Lona will be discussing her extensive research into the events of the early to mid 1900s and the impact of these events on her parents’ lives.
