Author to Speak at Library
The community is invited to meet Phil Sims, the author of “Not Without Purpose,” at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11 in the Lincoln Community Room. In Sims’ first mystery novel, a young marine is challenged to believe, a teen's obedience to God is tested, and a small North Carolina mountain town is brought to its knees in prayer. Phil Sims, a Vietnam veteran, served in the U.S. Navy for seven years, five of them aboard the USS Midway VA41. He is a Boy Scout scoutmaster and a member of the Gideons International. Phil and his wife, Alma, reside in West Monroe. This event is free to the public. For more information about this program and/or other programs at the library, contact Emily Arnold, programming coordinator, at 251-5030.
