Local author Tom Spence will be signing books at the Sunshine Café in Cordell, Oklahoma on Saturday, 18 July 2015 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. On Tuesday, 14 July 2015, Tom’s first novel, Even the Elect, will be released nationally by Tate Publishing.
Earlier this year, Tate released Throw Away Kids by Tom Spence. This identifies a generation of children that has been abandoned by their parents. Even though the children and parents may live under the same roof, the adults in this dynamic have walked away from parenting their children. The book asks the question: Are we concerned enough to get involved?
What does involvement mean? Part of it is mentoring those who have thrown in the towel on parenting back to the calling they were given at the birth of their first child. This book is not for the timid. It is not for those who would prefer to continue pointing fingers. It is for those ready to practice leadership at the community level and reclaim the family and community dynamic needed to bring up future generations in the way they should go.
Tom is a 1979 graduate of Oklahoma State University, a retired Marine Corps officer, and an ordained minister in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. He currently resides in Burns Flat, Oklahoma.
Tom will have several of his other titles with him as well. The Sunshine Café is located at 113 East Main Street in Cordell, Oklahoma. That’s on the north side of the town square.
