As part of Live & Learn: enriching lives through monthly learning series, RML is offering a book signing and discussion with Karla Gavin on Thursday, October 27 at 5:30 pm in the lower level Community Room.

Karla Gavin, author of Calming the Creative Chaos: Quotes for Everyday Life, began collecting quotes at a very young age. Join her as she discusses the impact words have on our lives. Her book will be available for purchase, $10 each.

Karla has worked in a variety of positions within higher education during her career, and she has used many quotes to prepare speeches, class presentations, or to emphasize a point within a conversation. Karla has enjoyed serving as a 4-H leader, helping to plan and build a softball/baseball complex and running the concession stand, planting trees with the local tree board, and serving on a variety of committees within the local school district, to name a few. The most meaningful lessons she has learned have come from the time spent with her daughter, her son, and her nieces. No matter how difficult life is, they keep Karla grounded, always make her smile, and help her find her calm and peace among the chaos called life.
