White Deer songwriter promoting songbook

Anna McAnear's 84th birthday was celebrated Wednesday.

She's trying to set up appearances at bookstores and churches to promote her new songbook, "Hymns for Our Lord Original Works to Uplift and Lead."

She's been performing her work at area churches and has received a positive reaction.

The book features 25 hymns and each has a personal story.

Her Pastor, Alan Wilson, of the First Baptist Church, says she's not slowing down.
