School District Has Two Newly Published Authors
Poplar Bluff – The Poplar Bluff Public Library hosted its first Local Author Fair—featuring two recently published authors from the R-I school district—on Saturday, Oct. 4, during the Iron Horse Festival.
Communication arts teacher Rachel Stiber of Poplar Bluff Junior High School released “Elise’s Choice” via Creative Prose Publishing based in Utah on Aug. 25. “Elise’s Choice” is a fantasy novel about a young lady who must make a choice that ends up affecting her life as well as the lives of everyone in her village, according to Stiber, who writes as a hobby.
Art teacher Charles Gearhart of O’Neal Elementary School released “Never Nurse a Grudge” via Rocking Horse Publishing in St. Louis on Sept. 23. “Never Nurse a Grudge” is about how fragile friendship really is, and how a purely innocent action or a thoughtless act can tear a rift in that tenuous bond, according to Gearhart, who has from an early age wanted to publish a book.
Both books are available at Barnes & Noble as well as Amazon.com, among other places.
