Gwen Stevens Hanson book signing event set for Wednesday in Okla. Panhandle

 

• Special to the Leader & Times

 

TIME: 4 to 6 p.m.

WHEN: Wednesday

WHERE: Guymon Public Library at 206 NW 5th St, Guymon, Okla.

WHAT: Gwen Stevens Hanson, a resident of Hooker, Okla., will be available to sign copies of her book, The Farmer’s Daughter.

Many authors have written about the devastation of the Dust Bowl in the Dirty Thirties and the Exodus from the area to find a better life. The Farmer’s Daughter chronicles the faith, grit, strength, and determination of those who chose to stay despite the obstacles. It is a tribute to the family farmer and his place in the American economy. Gwen Stevens Hanson’s book tells of her family’s slow rise from poverty to prosperity with humor and nostalgia.

The author spins tales of her life as a young wife and mother of four children in as many years. She touches on the loss of her eyesight and therefore her independence and the lengthy partial recovery.  She goes into the death of her father and the sinking realization by the sisters that their beloved mother has Alzheimer’s.

The Farmer’s Daughter is a feel-good story about attaining the great American Dream if you are willing to work hard and sacrifice. An inspirational story with a bit of politics, you will both laugh and shed a few tears as you read.
