Spring Book Sale, Still More Poe, and Mysteries

This weekend the Library Society will hold its annual Spring Book Sale: we refer to it as Mr. Hinson's Crazy Book Bargain Bonanza (everything must go, go, go)! As in the past, this year's sale will feature great titles and even better bargains. If you love books, and you are looking for a stack of volumes to read during summer vacation, the Library Society is the place to be on Saturday and Sunday. The hours for the sale are 9:30 AM-5:00 PM on Saturday, and 1:30-5:00 PM on Sunday. All books will be half price on Sunday. Book dealers are welcome, but only after Noon on Saturday.

People are still talking about Friday's Poe event (in a good way)! Prof. Harry L. Poe gave an enthralling lecture about the famous poet, and then read "The Raven." Members indulged on Poe-themed hors d'oeuvres, such as City in the Sea Shrimp, The Pit-cooked Barbeque and the Pendulum Sliders, and Ravens Wings (there was no extra charge for the puns). We are grateful to Prof. Poe and other Poe family members, who made the gala and our month-long Poe exhibit possible. If you have not yet seen the exhibit, you have until April 20. It is definitely worth a trip to King Street.

Don't forget that nationally best-selling mystery writers Carolyn Hart and Margaret Maron will be at the Library Society on April 16 to speak about writing mysteries in the Carolinas and to sign copies of their books. If you love mysteries, this is a must-see event!

We look forward to seeing you this weekend.

Read a book (that you purchase from the Library Society)!
