Final countdown time.
4 days to go. 3 authors remain.
Mindy McGinnis. Author. Librarian (aka a sister in arms). Friend of PPL. And here we thought we’d have trouble summing her up in a few words….
We were lucky enough to host Mindy at our library back in March (click through for photos), where she talked about the inspiration behind her novel Not A Drop To Drink. We had a great crowd, a great time, and Mindy was kind enough to stay afterwards and talk shop - and great books - with some audience members.
Not A Drop To Drink is about survival, family, and knowing yourself. It’s about being able to adapt when your world suddenly changes and everything you thought you knew doesn’t make sense anymore. And it’s a sparse book, every word used in just the right way at the right time. Lynn has only ever known what Mother taught her - defend the pond in their backyard at any cost to survive. But when Lynn’s life changes, when the landscape changes, can Lynn change as well?
Mindy will be talking killer thrillers and the art of writing good characters (and maybe sharing a few details on her second book, In A Handful of Dust) with us on July 26th but hey, don’t rely on us - read Not A Drop To Drink, and then meet Mindy at the Pickerington Public Library and get your book signed!
