Authors Toneal M. Jackson and Dominique Wilkins will read excerpts from their latest title. Unafraid to delve into some of relationship's most troublesome topics, the two will provide insight into issues that typically hinder relationships, as well as provide solutions to overcome them. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in Q&A, and interact with the authors in an intimate setting.

Book Synopsis:
Abuse. Blended Families. Communication. Money. Self-Esteem. Setting Boundaries. Trust. What do they all have in common? Regardless of age, race, or economic status, these issues typically plague all relationships. The difference however, is the manner in which the situations are addressed, and ultimately resolved. Encountered bumps in the road regarding your relationship? How did you handle it? Did you leave or did you stay? Still trying to decide exactly what to do? Your solution may be lurking inside...

About the Authors:
International Award-Winning Author Toneal M. Jackson specializes in writing nonfiction self-help. Her books provide inspiration, relationship help, and effective communication techniques. She ranked #3 as the 2011 National Black Book Festival's Best New Author; was recognized by CBS Chicago as one of "5 Indie Chicago Authors and Publishers to Watch Out For" in 2012; received the Silver Medal in the 2013 Readers' Favorite International Book Awards.

Author Dominique Wilkins has written a plethora of "good books". All of her fiction titles have received 5-star reviews, and entertain while incorporating a life lesson. Her books can be found in libraries throughout Indiana. www.authordwilkinsgoodbooks.com

Although both women have been married for over a decade, many times their methods of solving problems were in extreme opposition, and thus desired to write a book in which anyone in a relationship, male or female, could relate. These two powerhouses have joined forces to bring the best of both worlds...entertaining scenarios with real self-help solutions!

Pulitzer-Prize Winning Author Elizabeth Strout.

Elizabeth Strout grew up in small towns across Maine and New Hampshire. From a young age she was drawn to writing things down and keeping notebooks that recorded the details of her days. The beauty of the written word was a foundation for her from a very early age and her first story was published when she was twenty-six.
Strout has been very accomplished in her academic life, earning an English degree from Bates College and a law degree with a Certificate in Gerontology from Syracuse University College of Law. Despite her achievements and her demanding schedule, she could not stop writing. Her characters and stories needed to escape to paper. Strout’s first novel, “Amy and Isabelle, “ was published to much critical acclaim. Then came “Abide With Me, “ Pulitzer-Prize winning novel “Olive Kitteridge,” and “The Burgess Boys.” Even though her life as a writer has become increasingly more public, she remains a devoted, solitary, inquisitive, creator of honest fiction.
Tickets: Reception/Book signing and Main Floor $60.
Main Floor $25, Upper level $20.

As eighty-three year old Ruth tells his story through photos and essays, readers get a rich glimpse of his life but also the Mennonite family and community in which he was raised.
