DeKalb County Native Returns for Book Signing

5x7-Sue-Detweiler

Sue (Graber) Detweiler will return to Auburn to showcase her debut book, “9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom: Replacing My Worst with God’s Best.”

Detweiler will speak and sign books on Tuesday, December 2, at 6 p.m. in the Close Community Room.

According to Detweiler, the book is not a parenting how-to book, but, rather, “a book intended to reach into the hearts of moms to help them overcome unresolved issues, find peace with their imperfections, learn from their mistakes.”

“The book is not about how to raise the perfect child,” says Detweiler, who is the mother of six. “It’s more of a conversation with moms of all ages, to help them when they are feeling overwhelmed,” she says, adding that she hopes the book reaches out to those moms going through a difficult time, “particularly for those who know they should embrace being a mother, but for whom it doesn’t come naturally.”

Detweiler’s writing inspiration came from her father Allen Graber, long time resident of Auburn. “During the last days of my father’s life, he encouraged me to use my writing gifts to help others,” she said.

About Jenny

I am the Associate Director of Eckhart Public Library. My office is in the Administrative Annex, but I can often be found roaming the Eckhart Public Library Campus, performing acts of librarianship in every department! I love to read and learn about history. I'm also a huge fan of movies, TV and pop culture in general, and I love to read books of all types. Currently, I'm working my way around the romance section, with some historical fiction and graphic novels thrown in for variety! But you never know what I'm going to pick up next.
