"It's not just love stories between husband and wife, or boyfriend and girlfriend...it's a mix of different situations where love is an important part of life," said Stankay of Ambridge.
Stankay is the first to be featured, and plans to discuss where she gets her ideas from. She'll also read a few stories from "Tales of Twenty Women: Reflections on Love," her second book, which was published in May 2013.
The book takes a look at the fictional lives of various women and their relationships to show the many ways we love.
Now in her 60s, Stankay knows a thing or two about love and life. She's been married for 42 years, has two children and has grandchildren.
"Grandchildren do a lot for understanding love and bringing it to reality," she said.
Growing up in the North Hills, Stankay began writing at the young age of 12. She has lived in Ambridge for 35 years and belongs to Pennwriters, Ligonier Valley Writers, and the Taproots Writers Workshop, a local group that meets monthly at the Ambridge library to discuss their works.
Together with co-author Bruce Midkiff, another writer she met at Taproots, Stankay published her first book, "Between Two Bears: Short Stories on the Journey of Life," in November 2012.
An amateur photographer, she also produced both cover photos on her books and, in 2011 and last year, her photos graced the cover of the Loyalhanna Review, a magazine out of Ligonier.
Copies of Stankay's books will be available for $10 each on Saturday. She plans to donate $2 from each sale to the library. Amazon and Kindle versions are also available.
"Authors in Ambridge" is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be offered and registration is required.
