20100525whenindoubtAward winning Idaho author Gail Chumbley
at the McCall Public Library

Wednesday, November 2nd

River of January is a two-part memoir about the author’s in-laws:  Montgomery “Chum” Chumbley, a Virginian farm boy who became a famous pilot in WWII; and how he met his wife Helen Thompson, a successful dancer, Hollywood actress, and singer.
River of January is creative non-fiction; the characters are real, and the author took great pains to parallel Helen and Chum’s lives to the events in America at the same time.

“Gail’s presentation highlights the true story of her In-laws through an engaging hour of oral storytelling, slides, and music.  She uses her years of teaching experience to creatively capture the audience’s attention and bring her subjects to life.”
-Greg Simione, Chairperson, Garden Valley Center for the Arts
