NFGP ANNUAL VALENTINE TEA CANCELLED AND WILL NOT BE RESCHEDULED: The news that Collin College would be closed on the day of the Valentine Tea because of inclement weather called for immediate action! The food, already prepared for our tea by the caterer was donated to Samaritan Inn. Out of our disappointment came joy for others. They were overwhelmed! "Thank you," to the 40+ volunteers who were prepared for this beautiful occasion. After many discussions we determined it was impossible to reschedule the tea. We will look forward to next year.

DO YOU ENJOY A GOOD MYSTERY?
Do you remember looking forward to the next Nancy Drew book? Do you remember playing Clue and trying to discover if the murderer was Mrs. Peacock in the library with a lead pipe? Have you ever wondered about the process that writers of television, books, and movies use to entertain us with complex mysteries? Where do they get their ideas? Our speaker for March is Larry Thompson, trial lawyer-turned-novelist. Larry has written three suspenseful novels: The Trial, So Help Me Good, and his latest, Dead Peasants.
Some of the reviewers of Larry's novels have written; "A bright, feisty, smart legal thriller... Plenty of sizzle." "Fascinating and explosive... will rivet you to the last page." "Fabulous! A fast-paced, gripping story with characters you can root for... A can't-put-down read." "No writer alive knows the courtroom any better than Thompson." Larry will give us the inside scoop about how he takes real life stories from his law practice and turns these experiences into intriguing, suspenseful novels.
