Read Across McKinney Luncheon: Discussion and Meet the Author

Thursday, October 24, 2019

A book club favorite worldwide, Before We Were Yours, by Texas author Lisa Wingate, is a fascinating fictionalization of one of America’s most notorious real-life scandals.

The Friends of the McKinney Public Library encourages book clubs to schedule Before We Were Yours as their October read. As well as engaging in a common discussion, participants are invited to meet the author and have their books signed at a luncheon and discussion at Stonebridge Country Club on October 24, 11:30- 2 p.m. Tickets for the luncheon are $35, and can be purchased at Eventbrite.

Half Price Books, a Read Across McKinney partner, is making both Before We Were Yours and Wingate’s new release, Before and After, available for sale and signing at the event.

Spencer Smith, Director of Libraries, added, “Both the Roy and Helen Hall Memorial Library, downtown, and the John and Judy Gay library on El Dorado will be supporting the event with print copies of Before We Were Yours and Before and After, as well as audio CDs and downloadable audiobooks.”
