Pioneering Entrepreneur & Author to Speak at Sharon Forks Library

There’s no sign of slowing down for 99-year-old author and Georgia resident Margaret L. “Louise” Kryder Warren. In fact, her calendar has been pretty full with promotion of her book, Growing Where I Was Planted, since it was published in February.

Warren’s book was published
in February 2015 by Outskirts Press.
Now, Warren will appear at the Sharon Forks Library on Sunday, October 25 at 2:00 p.m. to sign copies of her book and talk about her experiences an entrepreneur in a male-dominated business.

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
