As with most other event in 2020, the Winters Friends of the Library Annual Gathering event will be a held virtually on Zoom. This year it is starting earlier than usual at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 2. The community is invited to join the nonprofit group for a fun and informative evening.
The first half hour will be a shortened monthly business meeting and a quick year in review to see how WFoL made an impact in the community. The slate of officers for 2021 will also be presented.
The 2021 Board of Officers slate is as follows:
- President, Rebecca Fridae.
- Vice President, Margaret Bailey.
- Recording Secretary, Diane Cary.
- Treasurer, Sally Brown.
- Past President, Linda Glick.
- Assistant Treasurer, Linda Springer.
- Corresponding Secretary, Sonya Godinez.
- Volunteer Coordinator, Carol Scianna.
- Communications Chair, Ameryn Briggs.
- Membership Chair, Joan Brenchly.
- Member at Large, Revalee Hemken.
At 6 p.m. guest speaker, Winters mystery writer, Tamsen Schultz will make a presentation. Schultz is the author of 12 romantic suspense novels, comprising two different series: the Windsor Series, which is set in a small town in Upstate New York, and the Tildas Island Series, which is set on a fictional, fifth, US Virgin Island. She’s a three-time finalist in the Pacific Northwest Writers Association contest (prior to publishing), an RWA Daphne Du Maurier Excellence in Mystery finalist for her fourth book, What Echoes Render, and the winner of the American Fiction Award for best mystery, for her seventh book, A Darkness Black. In addition to being a writer, she has a background in the field of international conflict resolution, has co-founded a non-profit, and currently works in corporate America. Like most lawyers, she spends a disproportionate amount of time thinking (and writing) about what it might be like to do something else. In short, she pretty much reads and writes for most of her waking hours.
