Beverly Hembrecht’s “The Gift of Gabby”

Local author, Beverly Hembrecht, will be signing copies of her book, “The Gift of Gabby,” at Flora Public Library, on Saturday, January 21, from 10:00am-2:00pm.  Copies of the book, which was published by Christian Faith Publishing, will be available for $10.95. 

The author has written for several years but it was primarily her first love:  poetry.  “The Gift of Gabby” is her first book.  It is a true story that Bev lived when she survived cancer for a third time.  A description from the back of the book states:

“This story is about a difficult journey through treatment for cancer.  More importantly, it’s about the antics of a Canadian goose named Gabby who was raised by people in a house.  The antics of the goose were told to the woman who had cancer, and he helped to heal her.  The Stephen’s minister who knew the goose told the stories to the woman with cancer.  It’s a story about a dangerous cancer and how a goose could heal people.  This goose was special, and he was a gift of healing.  This is a true story, and Gabby is a real goose.  The Gift of Gabby refers to his gabbiness, and he was certainly a perfect gift.”

Bev lives in Flora with her husband, Bill.  They’ve been married for forty two years and finish each other’s sentences.  She has two children, two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Flora Public Library is announcing a fundraiser for the library’s technology fund. FPL recently had its HARSTAN collection digitized in order to preserve it.

Digital copies of HARSTAN yearbooks from Flora High School, for years 1920-1977 will be made available for sale to the public. Years 1978-2001 may be released at a later date.  Editions from the last 15 years, will not be made available for sale to the public.  This is in compliance with the agreement made with Flora High School prohibiting sale of the last 15 years of HARSTANS.

Each copy of the HARSTAN requested for purchase will be saved onto an individual flash drive provided by the library. Multiple copies of the same year will be saved on individual flash drives as well.  One copy, regardless of date, equals one flash drive.  Digital editions from 1920-1977 will be available for purchase for $25.00 per copy, both for same year and different years.  Any defective flash drive will be replaced upon return of the original to the library within 30 days of purchase.  For computer security reasons, copies will not be saved to personal devices.

HARSTANS will be ordered by filling out an order form and returning it to the library. Order forms must accompany all orders.  Order forms may be obtained in person at the library, downloaded from the library website at www.florapubliclibrary.org or requested by email at florapl@florapubliclibrary.org.  Anyone paying with PayPal will use the PayPal form on the library website.  A postage fee of $4.00 will be charged per flash drive if an order is mailed.

Patrons needing HARSTANS for years 1978-current, may use the print editions that are part of the library’s Local History Collection. Patrons may contact Lisa Hemrich, Yearbook Coordinator at Flora High School, 618-662-8316, about purchasing print copies of the HARSTAN that are still available for the last fifteen years.

Proceeds from digital HARSTAN sales go to Flora Public Library’s Technology Fund. Digital HARSTANS would make great birthday, anniversary or Christmas gifts!!!
