Join us for an afternoon with author and humorist Joy Johnson of Omaha, and her “BOOB Girls: The Burned Out Old Broads at Table 12” series of books at the Kearney Public Library, Saturday, August 16 at 2:00 p.m. The Library is located at 2020 1st Avenue.
Joy will bring to life the characters from her successful comedy-mystery novels. These four retired widows may be old and somewhat burned out physically, but joining them for their daily meetings at Table 12 in Meadow Lakes Retirement Community will have you laughing out-loud. There are currently five books in the series.
“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 an afternoon of books and humor! A book signing will follow. This program is free and open to the public.
