Joy Johnson of Omaha, Nebraska, author of the BOOB Girls: The Burned Out Old Broads at Table 12 series will be appearing at Kearney Public Library, Wednesday, October 3 at 7:00 p.m. Johnson recognizes the value of public libraries and appeared as a calendar girl in Eastern Nebraska Library Systems Uncensored Librarians calendar for 2011.
Johnson will introduce us to her characters who may be old and they may be burned out here and there physically, but the four retired widows who meet daily at Table 12 in Meadow Lakes Retirement Community will be visiting the Library, even if they’re only characters of a series of successful comedy - mystery novels. There are four books in the series and all have laugh-out-loud components.
“I have a soapbox in the books,” Johnson told us. “I think older women, the seasoned Nancy Drews in our lives, are beautiful and not just spiritually or emotionally but physically. Just look at us. Our faces are chiseled by tears and laughter. Our hair is blown thin and white by winds of experience and there is so much knowledge and wisdom in our heads they can’t hold it all so it trickles down through the rest of our bodies and that’s why we get thicker as we age.”
Join us for a presentation and book signing with Joy Johnson!
