Library Corner, July 6, 2014

The Friends of the Library Association, FOLA, has announced that New York Time’s Best Selling Author, Karen White, will be their guest speaker at their Annual Fall Luncheon on September 25th at the Cleveland Country Club.

White writes what she refers to as ‘grit lit’ – southern women’s fiction – and has also expanded her horizons into writing a bestselling mystery series set in Charleston, South Carolina.  Her first book, In the Shadow of the Moon, was published in August, 2000.  This book was nominated for the prestigious RITA award in 2001 in two separate categories.  She has twice won the National Readers’ Choice Award for Learning to Breathe and On Folly Beach.

More information on FOLA’s luncheon and Merchant’s Alley will be forthcoming.  This month’s Book & Coffee Review held at the Craigmiles-Johnston House History Branch Library at 10 a.m. will review one of White’s recent novels, The Time Between. Meg Campbell, FOLA president will be the reviewer.  As always, FOLA provides the coffee.

The Wednesday Matinee on July 9th  will feature “The Absent-minded Professor,” Rated G, in the Community Room at 2 p.m. Game time following the movie will continue until 5:30 p.m.

A Father-Son Breakfast will be held in our Community Room July 26th from 10 until 11:15 a.m. Come prepared to build something wonderful.  This program is for boys ages 5 through 12 and their male guardians.  Home Depot and Chick-fil-A of Cleveland have joined us as sponsors in this first time event.
