Lyndon Library invites readers to spend the evening with an author

Lyndon Library’s “Evening with an Author” will feature a Kansas author who wrote her first fiction book about three ladies and a Carnegie library in Kansas. Romalyn Tilghman will be at the Lyndon Carnegie Library at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 12, as part of her current book tour.

Tilghman grew up in Manhattan, Kan., where she was a patron of the local Carnegie library before she could even read. Her new book, “To the Stars Through Difficulties”, was inspired by other Carnegie libraries in Kansas that she came across in her first job with the Association of Community Arts Council. She kept notes during her travels about the libraries and how groups of mostly women encouraged culture on the plains, knowing that someday she would write a novel.

“To the Stars Through Difficulties” is a gem – an endearing story about redemption and transformation. Tilghman succeeds in capturing the condition of an entire community, as well as the heart of this reader,” Heidi W. Durrow, author of the New York Times bestseller “The Girl Who Fell From the Sky”.

“We have a few copies here if someone would like to check it out before she visits,” said Genea Reynolds, Lyndon librarian. Reynolds urged anyone interested in attending the “Evening with an Author” to visit the library’s website to register. There is no cost to attend.
