One more week.....
Plan on joining us!!
It’s that time of year again! The 17th Annual SC Book Festival is being held at the Columbia Convention Center on May 17th -19th. This is a great family day in Columbia. There are book dealers, author talks and a wonderful children’s exhibit with puppets, plays, music and general silliness. The children will love it. The Lee County Library will be represented and in past years we have met CJ Box, Scott Turow, Mary Alice Monroe and my personal favorite Pat Conroy. If you have never been, make plans to come this year. I know you will have a great time. I hope to see you there.
This year, Mr. Conroy will be back along with his wife, Cassandra King. Also attending will be Mary Kay Andrews (Savannah Breeze), Dori Sanders (Clover) and Mrs. Frances Ginsberg’s sister in law Nathalie Dupree, author of several popular Southern cookbooks. Director Dawn mentioned that she was excited about Patti Callahan Henry – we have several of her books on the shelf. We will be purchasing any new releases that the authors have written, and hopefully have them signed.
