​​​​2024 Programs:

July 25, 2024, 7 pm   THIS THURSDAY!!!


Jeanette McQueen is married to David and has three adult children, from birth and adoption, plus four grandchildren.  Jeannette has led a Foster/Adoption Ministry at Beltway Park Church since 2012 and serves on her local CASA board.  

They Called Him Bucky was first written years ago for her daughter as a modern-day parable which she thought would resonate with her daughter's love of horses.  After watching a horse-training presentation at the Guitar Center at the Taylor County Expo, she decided to move forward with publishing the story.  Jeannette asked her friend, Nancy Capra to illustrate the story, and this is when Bucky truly came to life!  Jeannette and Nancy both live in Abilene, the Storybook Capital of America. 

Come be inspired about why this story is so special to Jeannette's heart.  It could be just what you need to hear!

August 22, 2024, 7 pm --- Bobbie Candas will be our guest speaker! Here is a short bio:

I'm a Texas girl: Grew up in San Antonio, went to school at UT in Austin and earned my degree in Journalism. I eventually settled in Dallas where I raised a husband, a few cats, and two kids. My husband and the cats will probably disagree on who raised who, but I'm always a sucker for a robust discussion. For years I was involved in retail management, but I have untangled myself from the world of clothing and shoes, and immersed myself in my true passion--writing fiction and taking deep dives into the lives of my characters.


Objectives:   To study methods of writing and research,
      To develop our talents as writers,
          To promote interest in writing, and
                       To encourage our fellow writers at all times
