Luncheon, please bring a dish to share.
Lydia’s new book How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky asks the
question…Can true love exist if engineered from birth? While her
first book Shine Shine Shine (one of the New York Times 100 most
notable books for 2012) asks…Is autism a disability, a gift or the
norm of the future? She has been praised by reviewers, saying she
crafts unique and moving love stories with wonderfully developed
characters. Lydia is a transplanted Michigander, who spent her
girlhood summers as a Pennsylvania farm girl, and now lives in
Norfolk, Va.   She is married and homeschools her two children a
boy and a girl.  Lydia spends much of her days taxiing them to
activities…orchestra rehearsal, karate lessons, the pony farm and
music lessons.  She loves to travel, knit, play the electric guitar and
read.  Let’s find out how she finds time to have a successful writing
career, too!  Coordinated by the Pungo-Blackwater Library
