Elizabethtown author Nancy Barry pens a book of stories too good not to be told.
“It only took 72 years,” she said.
Barry wanted to write a book since she was 3 years old.
She was too poor to have toys and too little to go out and became bored. She went to school with her mother to enroll her brother in first grade and discovered the wonder of books. Barry became a lifelong lover of books, counting “The Yearling” and “Heaven is for Real” as some of her favorites.
