Anne Panning Book Tour

September 30, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Anne Panning is the daughter of the late Lowell & Barb Panning. She grew up in Arlington and graduated from Arlington Green Isle School in 1984. Anne’s new book “Dragonfly Notes: On Distance and Loss” will hit shelves on September 18th with a special release with Northern Virginia’s annual 2018 Fall for the Book festival. Panning’s first memoir draws on decades of memory and experience from her childhood home in rural Minnesota to the riverbanks of Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, as she pieces together the hard truths about her own and her mother’s pasts. A stark, poignant tale of two women deeply connected, yet somehow forever apart. This memoir is a testament to the prevailing nature of love, whether in the form of a rediscovered note, a sudden moment of unexpected recall, or sometimes, simply the sight of a dragonfly flitting past. Originally from Minnesota, Panning now lives in upstate New York with her husband and two children.

Anne Panning will be coming back to Arlington to debut her new book “Dragonfly Notes: On Distance and Loss”. Mark your calendars, she will be stopping at the Arlington Community Center on Sunday, September 30th at 2:00 pm.
