Jackson to spark summer reading program

Posted

With summer reading club activities getting ready to go into full swing at all Baldwin County libraries, librarians are asking, “Why should the kids have all the fun?”

This summer the libraries are promoting a Summer Reading Program for adults, highlighted by a visit by Joshilyn Jackson, author of Gods in Alabama and Between, Georgia.

Jackson’s books are perfect summer reading fare, full of humor and memorable characters. To make matters even better, she is a delightful speaker.

Jackson will speak at the Foley Public Library, 319 E. Laurel Ave., on July 10 at 6:30 p.m. Her talk is part of the countywide Summer Reading Club for Adults.

The program is free, but before it begins, those wishing to attend the program need to visit their local library for reserved tickets as seating is limited.

Everyone is encouraged to read either or both of her books before her talk. They may visit their library to pick up copies of her humorous, quirky books.

If you know you’ll want an autographed copy, local bookstores are stocking extra copies.

Participating bookstores include The Book Factory in the Tanger Outlet Center in Foley, Just Books in Gulf Shores and Page & Palette in Fairhope.

The program will feature refreshments and a chance to win door prizes.
