BOOKS CAN BE LIFE CHANGING

 

 

One of my favorite authors is Pat Conroy.  I have always enjoyed letting him carry me away on the stories he writes.  I get wrapped up in the characters and the story itself.  Many of the people in his books are people I feel I know or have met in my life.

Pat Conroy is passionate about his work.  You can feel the passion as you read his books.  In reading his latest book I find he is passionate about reading, books, libraries, stories and the people who write them.   He shares how his mother influenced him from an early age to read.  Certain teachers encouraged him to read.  Libraries gave him access to read.

His life was changed by books and authors, helping him become the writer he is today.

FRIENDS OF THE MAUD SMITH MARKS LIBRARY BOOK SALE BARGAIN

 

Are you looking for a bargain?  We’ve got the best deal in town.  Nothing over $1.00.

    

The Friends of the Maud Smith Mark’s Library are having a book sale on Saturday, June 25th starting at 10:00 A.M.

I would just like to brag on this special group of volunteers for a little bit.  It takes a lot of time and energy to sort, store, set up, and sell the books for these sales.   I estimate about 1,000 volunteer  hours  to maintain the book sales throughout the year.
