“At the age of 68 I undertook an 11,433-mile walk of the perimeter of the USA,” said Rob Reynolds, Enumclaw resident and author of “George Washington, Jesus Christ and Uncle Fred.”
“My travels have taken me at times without conscious thought, to energy-infused locations around our planet…,” said Genora Powell, Buckley resident and author of “The Black Feather: A Telling Circumstance.”
Suzanne Popp, author of “The Bride Price” and an Enumclaw resident, has traveled throughout Africa. She tells of witnessing “the rapid change of governments from colonial occupation to independence,” visiting the households of
young wives and mothers and listening “as they poured out their dreams of a better future.”
Event organizer Marjorie Eldred has written a multigenerational memoir, “Seizing the Treasure,” and says, “If you read my book, it will make you want to write your own.”
Other authors taking part are Paul Jackson, editor of the association publications and author of “Letters From Paul”; Robert Gaylord, past president of PAWA and author of “Five P’s in a Pot: Winning Texas Hold ’em”; Shawn Inman, newly-elected PAWA president and author of “It Feels Like the First Time”; Florence Petheram, author of “Magic is for When You Need It”; and Ellen Hansen, author of “Granny Gullfeather and the Missing Medallion.”
