Local Author Publishes New Book

Local Collinsville author Rev. Dr. Lloyd E. Shaw has just published his seventh book entitled Memoirs of a Retired Pastor. In honor of this achievement Shaw's daughters hosted a party/book signing on Sunday, November 20th in the Community Room here at the Collinsville Memorial Library Center. The event was an enormous success with Dr. Shaw not only signing his newest book, but actually giving away free copies! Spirits were high among the large crowd that turned out, and there was a lot of joking between the author and attendees. However, if you missed this party and the chance to get your own free book don't worry. Lloyd E. Shaw will be a guest at the Art & Author Holiday Market at the Blum House on December 3rd from 12-4pm. As well, his book Memoirs of a Retired Pastor will be available for checkout from the library along with Lloyd E. Shaw's Dreams : Doorway to Emotional Health, God in the First Person : Moving Beyond Belief to Knowledge, and Reflections of a Twentieth-Century Tom Sawyer : Growing Up in the Depression.
