GRAVETTE — Gail Lee Cow­den will hold a book sign­ing from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Satur­day, June 30, at the Gravette Public Li­brary.

Cowdin spent years teach­ing writ­ing to sec­ondary stu­dents and adults. She reg­u­larly wrote sto­ries and po­etry but never sought to pub­lish. Af­ter she wrote her first novel, “De­cep­tion and Re­demp­tion,” she put it aside for more than 10 years be­fore de­cid­ing to pub­lish it for her fam­ily. She de­cided to self-pub­lish since she thought it wouldn’t be more than a pass­ing fancy. How­ever, when friends be­gan spread­ing the word of her sus­pense novel, it be­came much more and she fol­lowed up with book sign­ings, news­pa­per interviews and book talks in Ar­kan­sas and the Twin Cities.

Read­ers con­stantly asked for the next novel, so Gail wrote and pub­lished “The Fi­nal De­cep­tion” in 2017.

She has de­grees from Min­nesota Univer­si­tyMankato and Ham­line Univer­sity in Min­nesota. She cur­rently lives in north­west Ar­kan­sas with her hus­band Theo, golden re­triever Tilly and black cat Banjo.

Books will be avail­able for pur­chase at the book sign­ing event. The Gravette Public Li­brary is lo­cated at 119 Main Street S.E.
