The Friends of Athens-Clarke County Library present author Philip Lee Williams at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 14. Williams is the author of 18 published books, including 12 novels, four works of nonfiction, and two volumes of poetry. And in the spring of 2015, his new book, The Color of All Things: 99 Love Poems, will be out. It is the winner of the Adrienne Bond Award for Poetry and will be published by Mercer University Press. He will come to the Library to discuss his newest, long anticipated book, It is Written: My Life in Letters. In addition to a successful writing career, Williams is also an accomplished composer with more than eighteen full symphonies, an opera, and a requiem mass to his credit. Now, Williams tells the story of his creative life in this open and thoroughly entertaining autobiography. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is part of their on-going Café au Libris series. Books will be available for purchase and autographing. Appleton Auditorium.

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.
