Library Corner, March 16, 2014

Spring is just around the corner.  Be sure to check out the library’s great collection of books on gardening for plants, vegetables and flowers.  And for those heading out of town for spring break don’t forget to look over our collection of audio books for that long drive.  You can even download audio books from our READS collection to your smart phone or e-reader device.

The Friends of the Library Association, FOLA, will host their Book and Coffee Review on March 21st at the Craigmiles-Johnston House History Branch Library at 10 a.m.  Rita Cannon, FOLA Board Member will review a true crime story by Diane Fanning, Her Deadly Web.  This is the story of Raynella Dossett Leath, from Knoxville,  who is serving a life sentence at the Tennessee Prison for Women in Nashville for the murder of her husband David Leath in 2003. Prosecutors alleged that she shot her husband in the head, and then attempted to stage his murder as a  suicide. She is also a suspect in the death of her first husband, Ed Dossett, in 1992. To those who knew her, Raynella was a loving mother of two, a good neighbor and friend, a nurse who always reached out a helping hand. Was this woman capable of killing both her husbands?

Rita Cannon was a student of Raynella Dossett Leath when she was in nursing school.  Join FOLA for what should prove to be a very interesting review.  FOLA provides the coffee.

FOLA is making preparations for C. A. Griffith, their guest author for their evening event the end of April. He has authored two books, his first Code of Misconduct, Conduct Unbecoming and just recently released Code of Misconduct II. As well as being a gifted writer, he is a Major at Cobb County Sheriff’s Office. More information will be available soon.
