Snowbird Bev Prechtel didn’t expect to see a “Lady from Longboat Key” while vacationing at a timeshare resort just outside of Mesa, Ariz.
But that’s just what she discovered in the resort’s share-a-book library.
She hadn’t heard of Edith Barr Dunn, but she found a signed copy of her memoir, “Lady From Longboat Key,” that was published in 1986, and enjoyed reading Barr Dunn’s life story.
The copy was signed and addressed “to Louise.”
Dunn told the Longboat Observer that she visits Arizona every year for her birthday, although she didn’t get to make the trip last year because she was ill. She isn’t sure who the “Louise” is for whom she signed the book.
