FOLMC will host a book launch with local author Tom Glenn at Asbury Methodist Village. Mr. Glenn will discuss his newest novel Last of the Annamese, followed by Q&A and a book signing. A Senior Outreach Librarian from Montgomery County Public Libraries will provide information on senior services.
Mr. Glenn spent 13 years working on covert intelligence assignments shuttling between the U.S. and Vietnam. He speaks seven languages and has won numerous prizes for his short stories and novels. His writing draws on his experiences as an undercover agent as well as his time spent caring for hospice and AIDS patients, and the homeless. In Last of the Annamese, Mr. Glenn describes the haunting portrait of the lives of those trapped in Saigon in April 1975 as the city, and surrounding country, fell to North Vietnamese forces.
Asbury’s scenic campus is home to a 17-acre nature preserve, and the entire 130-acre campus has been certified as a “Wildlife at Work” site by the Wildlife Habitat Council.
This event is free and does not require advance registration. Light refreshments will be served. Books will be available to purchase on-site and proceeds will benefit FOLMC.
