Ponca, NE – Friends of the Library will host Nebraska author, Tammy Marshall, in an online discussion of her novel, The Clearwater House, on Thursday, April 1, at 7:00 PM.
Marshall says she is excited to discuss her book with Ponca readers. She states, “I got to know quite a few residents during the four years my son, Trevor Wright, was the assistant boys’ basketball coach in Ponca. I attended many games, including the state championship game in 2017 when Ponca faced off against my very own students of Neligh-Oakdale! Ponca welcomed me with open arms at every game I attended, so I’m looking forward to some equally warm embraces from the literary side of the Ponca people.”
According to president of Friends Heather Craig-Oldsen, “This Nebraska novel is engaging and filled will twists and turns. I love that it is set in a small Nebraska town, not far from Ponca.”
Tammy Marshall has been a high school language teacher for thirty years. In that role, she has worn many hats: one-act coach, speech coach, play director, flag corps coach, mentor, National Honor Society advisor, and class sponsor.
