Torry Monroe, publisher and editor of Senior Sun says of her: When Cappy Hall Rearick writes, she lays the flavor of the South down on paper with witty realism. She offers a great insight into the mind of a Southern female with honesty and laughs to spare. Her humor has been compared with that of both Fannie Flagg and Irma Bombeck.

The Brown Bag Lunch programs at the Lanier Library are held on the third Tuesday of most months. The programs are always free and everyone is welcome. Those attending are also encouraged to bring their lunch.
