Thursday, September 11, 7:00 p.m.

Join us at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 11, to welcome author Terry Kay to the Athens-Clarke County Library! Kay will read from and discuss his new book, Song of the Vagabond Bird, a story of five men, each obsessed with a woman in his life, who meet on an island off the coast of South Carolina for 10 days of intensive group therapy. Vastly different as individuals, the five find camaraderie in following the antics of a bizarre and unorthodox psychiatrist named Carson X. Willingham. Yet, it is there, on the island of ghosts and secrets, that the five learn the meaning of honesty. This program is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Friends of Athens-Clarke County Library as part of their on-going Café au Libris author series. Books will be available for purchase and autographing. In the Appleton Auditorium.
