LIBERTY - Liberty author Myra Smith will be honored with an autograph party for her latest book, Help! I’ve Fallen Into Old Age and I Can’t Get Up! on Nov. 18 from 4 to 5 pm in the foyer of the Geraldine D. Humphreys Cultural Center in Liberty. The Friends of the Liberty Municipal Library will host the event, and copies of the book will be available to purchase and have signed by Myra. The public is invited to drop by to visit and enjoy light refreshments.

Myra Smith’s book about aging takes a lighter look at the trials of growing older and will tickle the funny bone of all readers, but particularly members of the Baby Boomer generation. From falls, weight loss plans, memory loss, tech issues and goofy vacation scenarios, to scary doctor visits, surgeries, and hobbies gone bad, Myra has done it all.

Myra’s book is a tellall about getting older, but not wiser. It’s a funny romp through time that is flying by at record speed. The bad news is that sooner or later, we will all fall into old age. The good news is that we can laugh at ourselves in the process.

Myra was first published in her local newspaper. She had two poems published in a national book and won first place in Writer’s Guild competitions. Her online devotions reached a world audience on Anchor Your Life, and she was published in the regional magazine, Metropolitan Beaumont. In 1992, she placed an article in Woman’s Day Magazine. She published Soul Food for the Sandwich Generation: Meditation, Morsels for Caregivers in 2005.

Myra Smith lives in Liberty, Texas, with her husband Ray Smith. She has two sons, Brad Smith and his wife, Becki, and Bryan Smith and his wife, Erin, and three grands, Emily, Heather, and Reed.
