Don't miss the Georgia Writers' Panel Tonight!!!

Remember, tonight at 6:30 in the library, we'll be hosting the Georgia Writer's Panel! This event is co-sponsored by Reinhardt College and Yawn's Books & More in Canton.

"We have been working with Reinhardt for a while trying to put together an event, and it finally came together with the help of Dr. Donna Coffey," said Farris Yawn of Yawn's Books & More, Inc. "The theme will be history."

One of the guests will be columnist and former Cherokee Tribune editor Rebecca Johnston.

"Rebecca is a Canton native, and will be talking about Canton and Cherokee County history," Yawn said. "She has recently put together some of her holiday articles...into a very nice book called Hometown Holidays.

Another guest is Patricia Sprinkle, author of 20 historical mystery novels (which I recommend)!

"She will be talking about research for her books, and how important it is to get the history correct in novels," Yawn said.

Also attending will be author and historian Cynthia Simmons. A Georgia Author of the Year nominee, Ms. Simmons is the author of Struggles and Triumphs, a collection of short stories about historical women and their faith. She will also be discussing her research.

Tonight is a rare opportunity to hobnob with the literati! Don't miss it! (I won't).
