The Friends of the Orange County Public Library welcomes Nancy Peacock, 2018 Piedmont Laureate. The public is invited to a reading and reception Monday, February 26, 7-8 p.m., in the meeting room of the Main Branch of the Orange County Public Library in Hillsborough, North Carolina.
Nancy Peacock has been writing since fourth grade. She is largely self-taught and well- mentored. She is the author of the novels Life Without Water (chosen as a New York Times Notable Book), Home Across the Road, and The Life and Times of Persimmon Wilson, as well as the memoir and “writing-in-the-real-world” guide A Broom of One’s Own: Words on Writing, Housecleaning, and Life.
Nancy runs writing workshops and retreats for women. Her free Prompt Writing Class has been active since 2003 and continues to gain in popularity. Nancy believes that telling stories, our own and those we invent, is a human right that we must all claim to heal our hurt world.
