Effingham Public Library Hosts Author Sandra Schlager

The Suzette Brumleve Memorial Effingham Public Library is pleased to host author and former resident, Sandra Schlager, Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the library’s Fearday Family Café. 

Sandra grew up in Effingham, attended Sacred Heart Grade School and is a 1969 graduate of Effingham High School.  She is the daughter of Hubert and Laura Apke. 

Sandra is the author of the recently published book: RIPPLE IMPACT.  It is a fast-paced mystery set in the Midwest; in fact, one chapter incorporates the 1949 St. Anthony Memorial Hospital fire.  The book spans three generations of the Sonnet family. 

Sandra’s book, Ripple Impact, is available through Amazon books as a softbound book or e-book.  She has recently published a second title, Message in the Flowers.  Sandra will have both books for sale for $10.00 each and Sandra will be happy to autograph both.

Sandra currently lives in Carterville IL with her husband Steve.  She retired after working 43 years as a Registered Nurse; she received her nursing education at St. John’s School of Nursing and later attended the University of Illinois Springfield Campus for her Bachelor’s degree in Nursing.

Sandra volunteered as a candy striper at St. Anthony Hospital while in high school.

She spends her days reading, writing, being outdoors, traveling in their RV, and occasionally, and doing absolutely nothing.
