WINTERS – Author Dana Glossbrenner will be the featured author during a special review and book signing event to be held at the Winters Public Library at 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 3.

Those who attend, will hear the review of Glossbrenner’s new book, “The Lark" and get to meet the author.

“The Lark” is a contemporary West Texas novel set in the fictional town of Sulfur Gap. The main character Charley Bristow works at the Wild Hair Salon during the days, making the ladies happy with his skill with scissors, and at night, frequenting Hopper’s, the local honky-tonk, where he continues to make the ladies happy with his dancing skills. At 25, he’s already chalked up two failed marriages, so he has some life lessons to learn. An endearing character, readers cheer him on as he begins to learn some of these lessons, discovers a lost family tree, and heals his relationship with his mother.

“The Lark is my favorite kind of book, in that it has it all – a little romance, a little mystery, characters you feel like you have known all your life, and a lot of laughs. Then, just when I’d settled in for what I thought was a lighthearted romp, bam, it hit me right in the feels. Charming, funny, and real,” said author Kim Hunt Harris, author of best-selling Trailer Park Princess series.

Glossbrenner is a retired public school teacher and counselor. She taught English at all levels, including college, and served as both an elementary and high school guidance counselor. Her books include “Women Behind Stained Glass,” which chronicles the lives of three pioneer women who helped settle the San Angelo area, and “The Lark,” a contemporary novel of West Texas. Glossbrenner and her husband, Jim, are long-time residents of San Angelo.
