AuthorSpeak Series at the Norwalk Public Library

June 23, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Lester G. (Neddy) Smith

Valerie Palmary: A Small-Town Girl
Friday, June 23
12:00 – 1:30 pm
Main Library Auditorium
A light lunch will be served
Valerie Palmary was not born into massive wealth, although she lived a privileged life. When her father, who for 29 years held a high-level executive position as vice president of sales at the international corporation ZYX Inc. died suddenly at the age of 65, she was devastated, but at the same time, had an epiphany: to pursue her ambition to become a professional entertainer and entrepreneur.

Before becoming a writer, Lester G. Neddy Smith has affectionately been known as a professional musician, educator, composer, producer, and recording artist. His writing career began as a songwriter and poet improviser. He recently decided to complete one of the first of his many unpublished novels, satisfying another item on his bucket list. Neddy has traveled the world, not only as a bassist, but also as a recording artist. He has led music ministry and various jazz ensembles of his own compositions and has produced three CD’s, Turnaround, Mood Swing, and Blue Monday, among others. Smith has taught broadcast graphics in various corporate facilities worldwide and, when not preforming, draws from the cultural experiences he has gained through his many travels to enhance his writing and storytelling.
