Just in time for the holiday season, Linda Smith Kortemeyer, local author, will be at the Davenport Public Library Eastern Avenue Branch (6000 Eastern Avenue) on Monday, December 13, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. to talk about her new book, Spilling the Beans Over Coffee. Copies will also be for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to the FRIENDS of the Davenport Public Library.
Kortemeyer’s book emphasizes reflection. Once a person retires there is more time to spend reflecting on the things accomplished in life. Writing personal stories down is more than just a review of experiences, but it is a picture of an emotional and spiritual soul. In searching though records, there comes a realization many facts are lost and details missing from family history. There are photos found in file folders without labels, dates, or names. Why did someone leave this puzzle to be found unless these are special pieces in the mystery of someone’s life? The author encourages people to “Pour a cup of coffee, sit down with this book, think about things in your own journey on life’s path that you would like to pass on to others, and listen to your heart.”
