SIDEWALK SALE ACROSS AMERIA is a charming, heart-warming story about creating a "new normal" after the Pandemic.
It's a very contemporary story. Sabrina Harkins owns a yarn shop that she fears she may have to close because of the Pandemic, but she is grateful that her husband, Harold, has a good job they can count on. Harold Harkins, who is an amateur radio ham in his spare time, fears that with offices closed and people working at home, he will lose his job with the vending machine company, but is reassured that the family will be able to survive on the yarn shop income. Of course there is a cast of other characters, including the widower neighbor, knows nothing about yarn, but volunteers to run the shop when Sabrina is in quarantine, and 12-year-old Alford, whose uncles have convinced him Covid anxieties are all a hoax. Available on Amazon as a Kindle. Paperback coming.
About the Author: Informed by the entrepreneurial experiences of a life-time and living first-hand the ‘get-it-done’ ‘can-do-it’ attitude that got her parents and millions of Americans through the Depression, author, teacher, publisher, entrepreneur Peg Nichols prescribes a “Sidewalk Sale Across America” to re-launch small local businesses all across America out of the end of the Covid-19 Pandemic. What begins as Sabrina Harkins' invention for survival could spark something that helps millions. Sabrina, the yarn shop Queen of the Sidewalk Sale Across America. The author knows whereof she writes: she is a life-long knitter of note and holds a ham radio license.
It is with sincere appreciation that we acknowledge your dedication and contribution to Kansas Authors Club. Please accept this small token of our gratitude. We look forward to many more years of fellowship and growing our organization for the benefit of writers like you.
