Nancy Hartry celebrated the launch of Watching Jimmy, her first novel on Sunday, May 31, 2009. Watching Jimmy grew from her short story “Thunderbird Swing,” which was published in Secrets. Set in 1958, Watching Jimmy is a brilliant portrait of a time past, a family of strong women, and a resourceful young girl who exudes character, resilience, and most of all, love.
Nancy Hartry invited her friends from CANSCAIP and writing workshops to her launch.
