RAYMOND, Wash. - Anne Louise Grimm discusses her new book, "Intimate Reflections: Two Years at the Panama Canal," at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 7, at the Raymond Timberland Library. A reception sponsored by Raymond's Friends of the Library will follow. The Book Store will have copies of the book for sale at the presentation.

In "Intimate Reflections," Grimm tells the stories of the employees of the Panama Canal Company, their families and the building of the Panama Canal during a two-year period from 1967 to 1969. While her husband worked at the canal, Grimm worked as a photographer and as a regular columnist for the English-language daily newspaper the Star & Herald. She also participated in a variety of service organizations and community activities, as she does today in Pacific County.
