As Prohibition neared its end, Anna Lyla Timmons flaunted her red hair, lifestyle and business practices in Salem, Ohio. With the whispering of her name, many adversaries entered her speakeasy while others schemed against her. Lyla, a self-made reliant woman in her forties, dismissed their hatred as child’s play until one evening those whom she most trusted defied her – changing all of their lives forever.
Signing to be held Saturday, November 29 from 11:30 - 2:00 in the Dale Shaffer Research Library.
Life lessons presented through the voice of nature have a profound impact when we listen with the heart. What at first may seem like a simple reminder of all our childhood experiences... soon becomes a deeply enriching experience of learning through Seasons of life. The first in the Tree Wisdom Books series, this book is a gift that both children and adults will cherish reading over and over again.

Six steps to living your best for the rest of your life
In this book, Mitzi Beach gives a voice to the most powerful generation that's ever lived in America. Just as this generation shaped America as teenagers, as young adults, and as middle-aged parents, Mitzi believes that we can shape America once again. As the Boomers shift into retirement, they once again must find their POWER as a group and create change in our society by using our SMARTS.
Mitzi is a 1964 graduate of Salem High School and now lives in Wichita, Kansas. Her books in our gift shop have been autographed.

Still Quaker Crazy by David C. Hunger ($14.00)
Salem's star-crossed high school basketball season, 1959-1960. This second memoir (much shorter by design) picks up the Love Those Quakers craziness that carried over to the 1959–60 team, his senior year. The author’s aim is to shine a light on this star-crossed Quaker team that, in his mind, deserves special praise and recognition.
Both books have been autographed.
