Lake Wylie author to speak Aug. 26
LAKE WYLIE Lake Wylie author Larry Timbs Jr. will speak during the Aug. 26 Lake Wylie Rotary Club meeting.
Larry Timbs Jr. of Lake Wylie, co-author with Michael Manuel of the recently released book “Fish Springs: Beneath the Surface,” will be the guest speaker at the noon Lake Wylie Rotary Club meeting at Good Samaritan United Methodist Church, 5220 Crowders Cove Road.
Timbs is a former reporter, editor and professor who taught at Winthrop University for 27 years.
Set during the mid to late 1800s, “Fish Springs” is a tale of immediacy and universality as the authors tell a love story that speaks to multiple generations. Throughout the novel, an all-knowing narrator lets the reader witness the thinking of his primary characters and a few minor characters through stream-of-consciousness.
Also, tickets are available for the club’s fourth annual Lake Wylie Luau at 6 p.m. Sept. 13 at Red Fez Shrine Club Pavilion in Steele Creek. The event includes a silent auction and games. Tickets cost $20 in advance or $25 at the door. To purchase tickets or to donate an item or become a sponsor, visit lakewylieluau.org.
The event has raised more than $30,000 to benefit the community through scholarships, and helping local organizations including Clover Area Assistance Center, Lake Wylie Athletic Association and Crowders Creek Elementary School. The club plans to construct an outdoor science center at Bethel Elementary School this year.
The club meets every Tuesday. Lunch costs $9, catered by Christopher’s.
