BALLINGER - San Angelo author Dana Glossbrenner will present a program, “The Lark: One Writer’s Trip,” for the Ballinger Women’s Club meeting at 10 a.m. Wednesday, October 18, at the Carnegie Library.

Glossbrenner’s first published novel, “The Lark,” delves into the life of loveable Charley Bristow, a straight male hairdresser in the fictional West Texas town of Sulfur Gap. The setting was inspired by places such as Ballinger’s courthouse and main street, as well as other features from small-town West Texas. In this setting, Charley makes a new start at life with the support of friends and new-found family.

Cliff Hudder, author of “Splinterville,” says the book is “a totally engaging quest for happiness, set in a totally engaging contemporary Texas, and delivers up great characters for a great read.”

Glossbrenner is a retired English teacher and school counselor. She’s lived in West Texas all her life and uses that experience to capture the dialect and scenes of the area.
