She’s done it again. A year ago, Betty Cody Pence published her light-hearted memoir titled, “My Very Last Boyfriend,” with proceeds going to the Rescue Mission.  This year her project is a book of postcards bearing prints of original paintings by the Roanoke-born painter and writer herself.

If and when the purchaser can part with a picture, the selected paintings are designed on the back to be mailed out as postcards. The paintings range from colorful landscapes to whimsical scenes starring cats of many colors and a still life or two.

In all, the book contains a total of 20 postcard-sized prints of original work not including the still life on the cover.   The books are priced at $9.00 with proceeds again going to a charitable organization – this time to the American Cancer Society.

“Postcards by Betty” may be purchased at The Discovery Shop of the American Cancer Society and the Herb Cellar at Townside Festival Mall on Franklin Road as well as Tinnell’s on Crystal Spring Avenue, Too Many Books on Grandin Road and Willow Grove at The Forum on Starkey Road.
