Novelist Bren McClain will visit the Tyler Public Library from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday to promote her new book, “One Good Mama Bone.” McClain will be available to sign copies of her book, which will be available for $20, with a portion of the sale benefiting the Friends of the Tyler Public Library.

Admission is free and open to the public.

McClain’s writing often explores animals and the hurt they feel. Growing up on a dairy farm, she became well-acquainted with cows when her father taught her how to milk. This experience led to writing at age 4, and eventually writing a play about a wounded hummingbird. Since then, McClain has taught high school English and written for her local newspaper, The Anderson Daily Mail. “One Good Mama Bone” is her first novel.

The Friends of the Tyler Public Library is sponsoring the event.
