An Evening with Crime Novelist C. A. Griffith has been announced by the Friends of the Library Association (FOLA) for April 24th at the Cleveland Country Club.  C. A. Griffith is a retired Major with the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office.  His assignments over the following three decades included undercover narcotics, Atlanta DEA Task Force, fraud and fugitive investigations, Commander of Internal Affairs, and Assistant Division Commander of Field Operations.  He retired to devote his full attention to writing Grey Colson crime thrillers.

There will be an Author Reception at 6 p.m. for $35 per person or $60 a couple. The Author Talk at 7:30 p.m. will be $5 or free with a student ID.  A Question/Answer Session and Book Signing will follow the Book Talk.

The “2nd Sundays @ 2” will be showing “The Armstrong Lie” documentary movie on April 13th in the Community Room. In 2009, Alex Gibney was hired to make a film about Lance Armstrong’s comeback to cycling. The project was shelved when the doping scandal erupted, and re-opened after Armstrong’s confession. “The Armstrong Lie” picks up in 2013 and presents a riveting, insider’s view of the unraveling of one of the most extraordinary stories in the history of sports. As Lance Armstrong himself says: “I didn’t live a lot of lies, but I lived one big one.”

A new Adult Book Club is being formed at the library and will meet the third Wednesday of each month at 2 p.m. in the Carmichael House Conference Room.  An informational meeting will be held April 16th at 2 p.m. to discuss upcoming reads and to distribute books for the first meeting in May.  Please call the library if you are interested in attending the Adult Book Club or for additional information.  This program is open to the public ages 18 and older.

The Westerns have been moved.  If you are a Western Book reader, the books have now been relocated to the Reading Room in the Fiction area of the library by our Mysteries and Large Print books.
