Now entering its fourteenth year, LAKE TRAVIS READS 2021 will feature the new book by #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Wingate, "The Book of Lost Friends." An instant New York Times bestseller, the story follows an unlikely trio of girls coming of age as they embark on a perilous journey through reconstruction Louisiana and Texas … and a modern-day teacher in small-town Louisiana who rediscovers their story. The Book of Lost Friends was inspired by real-life “Lost Friends” ads, through which families separated during slavery sought to find their lost loved ones in the chaos following the Civil War. Wingate is a former journalist, inspirational speaker, and bestselling author of more than twenty novels. Her work has won or been nominated for many awards, including the Pat Conroy Southern Book Prize and the RT Booklovers Reviewer’s Choice Award. Her 2017 historical novel "Before We Were Yours" centered around the true events involving the Tennessee Children's Home Society and has sold over three million copies. The community is invited to hear Wingate speak at the 2021 LAKE TRAVIS READS “Evening with the Author” on Wednesday, March 10 at 7 p.m. This year’s event will take place via Zoom and the registration link can be found on www.laketravisreads.org. The event is free and open to the public.
