Press Release from the Friends of the DeLand Public Library:

The Friends of the DeLand Public Library hold their annual meeting on Wednesday, January 17th, 3 pm, in the auditorium of the Library at 130 East Howry Avenue. The business meeting and installation of new Board members is at 3 pm. The Program begins at 3:30 pm. A local author, Phyllis D. Alltop, plans a talk on what it takes to be a writer if you are serious; what is a story board (characters, chapters, calendar), what audience are you writing for and then she reads a short story "Pink Paper Bag." Ms. Alltop has lived in DeLand for five years coming from Indiana. She has written two books in "The Betty Freeman-Weber's" Series entitled "Bear Attack" and "Stardust." The third in the series will be available in the spring of 2019.
