Author to visit Fort Worth Library, discuss novel based on home for troubled girls

Best-selling author Julie Kibler will discuss her latest novel, Home for Erring and Outcast Girls, at a special event set for 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday, July 24, at the Central Branch of the Fort Worth Public Library, 500 W. Third St.

Adults and young adults who are fans of historical fiction would especially enjoy the book and the opportunity to meet the author.

The new novel is based on historic events, set in the early 1900s in Arlington, at a home designed to rehabilitate prostitutes, addicts, unwed mothers and “ruined” girls where they could stay with their children. Two of the women at the home form a strong friendship that helps them overcome obstacles, but ultimately head down different paths in life.

A century later, a university librarian uncovers the stories of the two women and begins to comb through her library’s archives to learn more. The librarian herself is changed by the journey and confronts her own past.

The author will be available to sign copies of the new book purchased at the event.

Kibler is also the author of the best-selling novel, Calling Me Home, a book sparked by a love story her father told her about her grandmother.

This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
