Local author, Amanda Farmer, will be signing books at the Plainview Library on Saturday, December 6th from 9am until noon and at the Jon Hassler Theater bookstore from 5-8pm. Her first published memoir, If You Leave This Farm, is a story of family loyalty, finding one’s purpose, and the pursuit of dreams. Amanda worked on her family’s southeastern Minnesota farm until the age of twenty-nine. From there, she pursued a career as a Nurse Anesthetist, traveled the globe, and served others with her nursing skills. Hers is a tale of a family’s relationship that despite its profound flaws gave her the steadfast determination to chart her own path and make a difference in the world.
