Lakeport Library features local authors series in September

LAKEPORT, Calif. – In September Lakeport Library will host a series of five free book presentations by local authors.

The books cover Lake County history, foster children, adventures in the woods of Maine, mindfulness and a mystery novel set in a small town.

On Wednesday, Sept. 3, at 5:30 p.m. JoAnn Saccato will speak on “Mindfulness” and present her book “Companioning the Sacred Journey: A Guide to Creating a Compassionate Container for Your Spiritual Practice.” Saccato is a mindfulness teacher and consultant, Reiki Master/Teacher, author, and inspirational speaker.

On Saturday, Sept. 6, at 2 p.m. Linda Guebert, a local author and educator, will present her debut mystery novel “The First Lie,” a story of dark family secrets in a small town. The First Lie is a change of genre from Guebert’s previous book, a memoir called “The Hardest Thing I’ll Ever Do: A Journey of Sorrow, Healing and Help.”

On Saturday, Sept. 13, at 2 p.m. Robin C. Harris will present his book “Journeys Out Of Darkness: Adventures in Foster Care.” Harris has been a teacher, a school counselor and a school principal. With his wife he has operated residential schools and summer camps for children with learning and behavior challenges. Harris distills all of that experience into what he calls a user-friendly book with universal appeal.

On Saturday, Sept. 20, at 2 p.m. Dick Immel will present his book “Damn Californians: A Family’s Great Escape,” which tells the story of his family’s escape from a drug-infested environment to the Maine woods. The Immels confronted and survived fires, quicksand, explosions, wild animals, severe winters and hostile neighbors in what they had hoped would be a benign new home.

On Saturday, Sept. 27, at 2 p.m. Marcia Bishop Sanderson, a writer with Lake County roots, will talk about her book “Images of America: Lake County.” She will bring albums containing the hundreds of photos of people, places and events in Lake County that she and collaborator Maureen Garcia Carpenter collected for the book. Sanderson and Carpenter packed thousands of years of Lake County history into this compact book for the general reader.

The authors and guests will have time to talk following the presentations.

The Friends of the Lake County Library will provide light refreshments.

The Lake County Library is planning more events to promote and encourage local authors and will announce more details about those plans in a few months.

In the past, many local authors have donated their books to the Lake County Library. The library greatly appreciates these donations which make it possible to grow the collection of works written locally.
