Meet author Susan Gregg Gilmore at the Cobb Library Foundation's Booked for Lunch on Aug. 22 at the Marietta Country Club
Join the Cobb Library Foundation friends at the Booked for Lunch event featuring author Susan Gregg Gilmore, and her latest book: The End Again, A New Book Tentatively Titled The Funeral Dress.
Susan Gregg Gilmore was born in Nashville, Tennessee. Her mother is a painter, and her father is the son of a revival-bred preacher, a rich storyteller and insurance executive. After graduating from the University of Virginia and earning a Master's degree from the University of Texas, Susan birthed three babies, made cookies for bake sales, chaired community fundraisers, taught Sunday School, and free-lanced for newspapers like the Los Angeles Times and the Christian Science Monitor.
Gilmore’s first novel, Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen, is rooted in summer vacations spent with her paternal grandparents who, after church on Sundays, always took their granddaughters to the local ice cream emporium. The novel became a Southern Independent Bookseller Alliance (SIBA) 2009 Book Award Nominee; her second novel, The Improper Life of Bezellia Grove, was reviewed on National Public Radio and was named a 2010 SIBA Summer OKRA Pick and recently selected as part of TARGET’s Emerging Author Program. A new novel with another southern setting will publish later in 2012.
