November Program Meeting

November 17th will be our regular program meeting. We will be holding it on Zoom.

The Zoom call will open at 7PM for social time until the meeting officially starts at 7:30PM. The meeting officially ends at 9PM but we will keep Zoom open for those that want to hang out for more social time.

Join us on November 17th to hear first-time author Rhona Weaver tell her story about writing an award winning novel after her retirement.

Her first novel “A Noble Calling” received the 2021 Bill Fisher Award for the Best First Book in Fiction from the Independent Book Publishers Association; the 2021 Best Action/Adventure, 2021 Best Christian Fiction, and Finalist for the 2021 Best Thriller from the New Generation Indie Book Awards. It was a Finalist for the Eric Hoffer Award in Commercial Fiction from the Eric Hoffer Foundation, and a Bronze Medalist in Regional Fiction from the Independent Publishers Book Awards. Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson announced last summer that the book was his fiction selection for The Governor’s Summer Reading List.

Rhona Weaver is a retired swamp and farmland appraiser who had a thirty-five-year career in agricultural real estate and founded a program for at-risk children in Arkansas. She is a graduate of the University of Arkansas, a Sunday School teacher, and an avid gardener. Growing up on a cattle farm in the Ozarks gave her a deep appreciation for the outdoors and wildlife. Her ideal vacation spot is a national or state park. Rhona’s husband, Bill Temple, is a retired Deputy Assistant Director of the FBI; he helped immeasurably in her research for this book. Rhona and Bill live in Arkansas, on a ridge with a view, with three contented rescue cats. A Noble Calling is Rhona’s debut novel and the first in the FBI Yellowstone Adventure series.
