FOLEY - Head to the Foley Public Library on Wednesday, July 28 at 10 a.m. for Coffee & Donuts with an Author. This month will feature local author Kathie Farnell. Come to hear Farnell discuss her writing process as well as her upcoming publication, Tie Dyed: Avoiding Aquarius.
The oldest child of two lawyers, Farnell was born in Montgomery, Alabama. After surviving junior high school, she went on to live through Lanier High School, University of Montevallo and University of Alabama Law School. During her legal career, she served as an attorney in the State Attorney General's Office, directed the University of Alabama's Office of Energy and Environmental Law, and founded Farnell Legal Research. Bored out of her mind, she left law in 1995 to produce radio and television programs. She collaborated with Smithsonian Productions on her first radio project, Remembering Slavery, which won the Gabriel Award.
Today, Farnell lives ten miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico with her husband Jack Purser and an assortment of cats. Duck and Cover is her first book. The sequel, Tie Dyed: Avoiding Aquarius, in which she discovers to her consternation that the Moon is in the Seventh House, is scheduled to come out this fall.
