The Friends of the St George Library have sponsored Mary Alice Monroe, a noted Lowcountry author, on Sunday June 23, at 3 p.m. in the Library Event Room.
This program will include a discussion of Monroe’s latest book followed by a question and answer period and will conclude with a book signing.
Tickets for this event are $20 each, which covers admission to the program and a copy of her newest release, The Summer Girls, scheduled to go on sale July 2. Tickets must be purchased in advance to be assured of a copy of the book on the day of the event.
Monroe is the award-winning writer of 14 novels, many of which are set in the South Carolina Lowcountry. The Summer Girls is the first in a new series centered around complicated yet heartwarming female relationships and the power of forgiveness. Set in a charming summertime island backdrop, three sisters reunite on Sullivan’s Island off the coast of South Carolina. Their 80-year-old grandmother, Marietta Muier, a dowager of Charleston society, gathers them to her summer home in an attempt to reunite the girls after their years apart.
To reserve your place at this exciting event, call the Jennie McMahan Library at 843-563-9189 or the Seago Library at 871-5075 during regular business hours to purchase your ticket. Tickets are also available at the Tri-County Chamber offices in the Klauber Building in St. George.
