Dr. Joan (Evans) Hartman, sister of Dr. William S. “Bill” Evans, who was pastor of Union City First United Methodist Church and who gave the title to the book, will be at the Obion County Public Library in Union City Monday at 10 a.m. for a book signing for her most recent publication, “Grace Finds Gold.”

Dr. Hartman is a graduate of Lambuth University in Jackson, Peabody College at Vanderbilt in Nashville and the University of Memphis. She is a former kindergarten and first-grade teacher and is a retired school adminsitrator in Lauderdale County. She is also the author of another children’s book, “Sam’s Special Cookie,” which she signed at the library.

The main character in her most recent book is Mary Grace Hartman, based on Dr. Hartman’s youngest grandchild, who is 2 years old. In the book, she is projected to a kindergarten student whose teacher is based on Dr. Hartman’s third-grade teacher, Miss Belle.

The teacher introduces the class to the color gold and asks them to find items made of gold in their homes. Grace discovers some things that are truly gold and some things that only look like gold, and she learns an important lesson from her great-uncle Bill.
