TAHOE CITY, Calif. — On August 10, the Tahoe League for Charity held its monthly speaker luncheon meeting at Jake’s on the Lake in Tahoe City.

The featured speaker was local resident and author Prudy Grimes, who introduced her first novel, “The End of Snow.”

Prudy has received an MFA in Fiction Writing from the University of Pittsburgh, where she was a creative writing teacher for 17 years.

She found inspiration for this novel on the ski slopes of Lake Tahoe with an engaging tale that involves her love of skiing, environmental issues and mystery.

The heroine is Laura Bailey, a snow scientist investigating the earlier than usual snowmelt in the Sierra Nevada resort of Squaw Valley. The story evolves into murder and intrigue with twists, turns and suspense woven throughout.

The insight into the scientific world of snow science offers uniqueness with an added dimension.

“The End of Snow” is available on Amazon and at the Bookshelf bookstore in Truckee. You can also friend her on Facebook posted as “The Laura Baily Snow Science Mysteries,” or email her at prudy@prudygrimes.com.

The Sept. 14 TLC monthly meeting will honor seven grant award recipients for 2015: AAUW, Kings Beach Library, North Tahoe Resource Center, Project MANA, Sierra Senior Services, Tahoe Rim Trail Association, and Wylie Animal Rescue Foundation. All recipients will be attending to receive their awards.

The meeting will be held at Jake’s on the Lake, North Lake Blvd., Tahoe City, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The cost is $17. For reservations, contact Ellen Magnani at gilmagnani@aol.com.
