Don’t Miss the Last Summer Literary Picnic!July 29, 2009
Summer has gone by fast! Thurber House wraps up our season of Summer Literary Picnics with mystery writer P. L. Gaus, author of the popular Ohio Amish Mystery Series.
Gaus, a former professor of Chemistry at the College of Wooster, took an interest in writing fiction in 1993. He began to write mystery novels set in Holmes County, Ohio—home to the largest Amish population in the world. Gaus will read from his sixth and latest book in the series Separate from the World, which explores the rift between two Amish factions, one who accepts modern medicine treatments, and the other that rejects all outside influences.
Dinner for the evening, from Pat Baker at Party Panache, is an Italian club sandwich (cappicola ham, pepperoni and salami with provolone cheese and pesto), roasted potato and corn salad, and assorted gourmet cookies. Remember to RSVP to (614) 464-1032 ext. 11, by Monday, August 3, at 4 p.m. to get dinner. (Vegetarian option available upon request- must be ordered by Monday!!!)
Bring your friends, food, and wine, and enjoy a great evening with a fantastic native Ohio author, writing about native Ohioans! Check out Gaus’s blog at http://blogs.ohioswallow.com/gaus/
