Laurel Hurst Retirement Community’s Book Club meets once a month.

This month they read “Elmer Left,” by Kate Liebfried. Liebrried is the granddaughter of resident Jean Gregonis and was available to come speak with the group.

“Elmer Left” is about a 78-year- old man who leaves home one night and goes on many adventures.  He meets new people, lives in very different cities and learns a lot about himself in the process.

Liebfried talked with the book club about her process for writing, how she became a writer and about her next book which should be coming out soon.
