Speaker: Jan Mathew, author, former editor of Decatur Magazine
: Surrounded by Love: My Family’s Journey through ALS

Jan Mathew is the co-author of several books, among which are You Know You Are in Illinois When … and Decatur: Illinois’ Central City. From 2002-2018 she was contributing editor of Decatur Magazine and still writes for that publication. She will share parts of her recently completed manuscript with the working title Surrounded by Love: My Family’s Journey through ALS, a memoir about and a tribute to her late father.

Books Between Bites is sponsored monthly by the Friends of the Decatur Public Library. A speaker presents a book or topic of interest, and you do not have to read the book to come and enjoy the program. You can bring your lunch, and the coffee is always on.
