Award-winning author, Tracy Million Simmons, will hold a release party and book signing 4 - 6 p.m. Thursday at Ellen Plumb’s City Bookstore, 1122 Commercial St. Readers are invited to come and go. Her newest book is a collection of short stories titled “A Life in Progress.” The book is being published by Meadowlark Books of Emporia and sells for $15.

In this collection of short stories, Simmons captures slices of life, glimpses of everyday people and everyday thoughts and actions, and the many moments — touching, amusing, happy, and sad — of lives in progress. This book is an intimate peek into a writer’s stash, written across the decades, an experience of timelessness and the human condition. Through fiction, these stories reveal relatable truths.

About the book, Cheryl Unruh writes: “Tracy Million Simmons shows clearly the moving parts of relationships. Her stories reveal the irreversible ties of family. She shows the push-and-pull between spouses, between parent and child, between dear friends, and we see how we’re all recklessly and joyfully bound one to another.”

“A Life in Progress” will be available after the release party from Ellen Plumb’s City Bookstore and through any book retailer. It can also be ordered directly from the publisher at www.meadowlark-books.com.
