Author Lesia Hammonds Dunn Holds Book Signing Event

Thursday, January 3, 2013

Author Lesia Hammonds Dunn will hold a book-signing event on Jan. 12, from 1-3 p.m. at Jittery Joe's Coffee, 1690 25th Street Northwest, Cleveland, Tn. 37311. Ms. Dunn, a resident of Charleston, Tn., will be available to sign copies of her book, Life Is but a Dream

Organizers said, "What is a dream? It is not necessarily wishful thinking or hoping for a better tomorrow; it is about living your best life now. It's the expression of your heart, mind, body, and soul. 

"The truth that life is but a dream was accomplished through author Lesia Dunn's son, Erwin. Life Is but a Dream is an inspiring and breathtaking chronological biography of Erwin's battle with acute lymphocytic leukemia from his diagnosis at ten months old to his death at age fifteen. Through Lesia's firsthand account, one will follow the Dunn family and witness Erwin fight the good fight of faith, never giving up on his creator throughout his affliction. 

"If you have ever had to deal with the tragic loss of a child due to cancer, this book is for you. In Life Is but a Dream, witness how this family came together and never once lost their faith in the Lord throughout the trials and tribulations of Erwin's illness.
