Sautee Shadows

Tuesday, July 28, 2015, 11:30 a.m.

To conclude our Adult Summer Reading Program this year, Oglethorpe County Library’s Adult book discussion group, Open Book, will welcome Georgia Author Denise Weimer for a special author Q&A session on Tuesday, July 28, 2015 at 11:30am.

We will be discussing her first book in the Georgia Gold Series, Sautee Shadows. This sweeping saga of four families, whose lives intertwine through romance, adventure, and murder, linking antebellum Georgia's coast and mountains during the economic expansion of the 1830s has become a favorite for both history buffs and people who have a passion for reading novels set in Georgia.

Denise will have this book as well as the additional books in the Georgia Gold Series available for purchase and you will have the opportunity to have them signed. Books will be available for $15.00 each, 3 for $42.00 or 4 for $48.00. As always, the library will have copies of Sautee Shadows available for check out at the circulation desk two months prior to the event. Just remember to bring your valid PINES library card or stop by to register for a free library card today.

Tuesday, May 26, 2015, 11:30 a.m.

Mudbound: a novel by Hillary Jordan: Hillary Jordan’s prize winning debut will be the object of discussion at the May meeting of Oglethorpe County Library’s Open Book discussion group. Setting her novel in 1946 on a Mississippi Delta Farm, Jordan beautifully writes on a sad subject of prejudice and unjust, which takes many forms, both brutal and subtle.

Cleopatra: a Life

Tuesday, March 24, 2015, 11:30 a.m.

Cleopatra: a Life by Stacy Schiff: Oglethorpe County Library's Adult Book Discussion Group, Open Book, will be discussing Stacy Schiff's biographical account of the life of Cleopatra on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at 11:30am. Cleopatra, born a goddess, and only 18 when she became Queen, has gone down in history for all the wrong reasons. Schiff takes the opportunity to present her research of the history and separate the facts from fiction in this account of the magnetic queen whose death ushered in a new world. Books are available for check out at the circulation desk and everyone is invited to attend the discussion. Registration is not required, but you can call 706-743-8817 to be added to the email list to receive important updates and reminders about the book club.
