New York Times Best-Selling Author, Jane Lorenzini, will discuss her latest book, “The Growing Season.” Jane’s book is the second in a series set in early Ft. Myers, Florida, continuing the story of Belle Carson and a host of other lovable, quirky characters.

This is Jane’s second appearance at an Authors Roundtable at Westminster. She discussed her debut novel, “After the Rain,” after its release in 2019. She has been a great friend to beginning writers in the Joy in Learning creative writing workshop called Telling Your Story by consulting with individuals as well as speaking to the class. 

Jane has written four best-selling books with her dear friend, Hoda Kotb, co-host of NBC’s Today show. She and Hoda have remained close after working together years ago in TV news in Ft. Myers. According to Hoda, “Jane’s writing will charm your heart and tickle your funny bone.”Buy a copy of the book here.


This Authors Roundtable will also introduce Sam Owen, who began writing about his Mississippi boyhood in the Telling Your Story workshops. Sam’s delightful stories have become a book titled, “Old Times Not Forgotten: As Told by a Son of the South.” Sam and his wife, Judy, are long-time members of Westminster. He is busy at work on his second book about his love of Ole Miss, meeting Judy, and playing football on championship teams in the early 1960s.Buy a copy of the book here.
