|Warren’s book was published|
in February 2015 by Outskirts Press.
She became an entrepreneur before it was common for women to work outside of the home, and men, floods, and naysayers couldn’t stop Warren in finding a way to support herself and her two daughters. Warren launched her business by raising chickens to sell to local farmers in Pennsylvania in the mid-1940s. That small business formed the basis for Island Poultry Farm, Inc. and during her talk Warren will share some of the ways those chickens, the weather, and her customers forged her determination to make her business a success.
Warren says it takes work, not luck, to succeed in life and she wrote the book to remind her grandchildren and future generations to work hard toward their goals. She will share photos and excerpts from her book, as well as personal stories of the challenges, heartache, and triumphs on her path to becoming a millionaire.
Participation in the author talk is free and copies of Growing Where I Was Planted will be available for purchase. For more information or to register to attend, please visit www.forsythpl.org.
