A noted author and humorist is coming to Knoxville this week. Charlene Baumbich will be in town Thursday for a number of activities. At noon Thursday, she will be the guest speaker for the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce’s Expert Edge Seminar Series at Peace Tree Brewing Company. Chamber Director Larissa Van Donselaar says that Baumbich will discuss perseverance in the workplace and in your career. You can register for that event at the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce.

Baumbich will then visit the Next Chapter for afternoon tea and a book signing at 2pm, before heading back to Peace Tree at 5:30 for a special program titled “Charlene, etc., Life’s Quirky Tidbits.” Baumbich has written a number of books and novels, including the Dearest Dorothy series and Finding Our Way Home. She first visited Knoxville a few years back, where The Next Chapter owner Tresa Mott says what was supposed to be a quick stop at a gas station visit turned into a six-hour visit. The book signing and the 5:30 program at Peace Tree are open to the public.
