The 2022 Books and Bites schedule is here and it is going to be AMAZING!
Books and Bites is hosted by the Friends of the Mountains Branch Library. It is our major fund raiser for the library. Funds raised are used for book purchase, programming, supplies, furniture, computers, the Book Mobile, and the digital sign – just to name a few.
To sign up to attend one (or all) of these fabulous events, please contact Mountains Branch Library by phone (828-287-6392) or in person (150 Bill’s Creek Rd., Lake Lure.) Cost is only $25 and includes a 3-course lunch at the Lake Lure Inn, the opportunity to purchase the current book and have it autographed, and a lively discussion with the author. Registration is required for each event as we have limited spacing.
March 30 – Kristy Woodson Harvey “The Wedding Veil” follows four women across generations with a connection to a wedding veil and the famous Vanderbilt family. We invite you to have fun at this event and wear a wedding veil to help celebrate the launch of this new title.
June 8 – Mary Alice Monroe “Search for Treasure” is the sequel to New York Times bestselling “The Islanders,” which is a beautiful story of friendship, loss, and the healing power of nature. Jack Potter is back on Dewees Island for another summer with his beloved grandmother, Honey.
August 10 – Dianna Rostad “You Belong Here Now” is Dianna’s debut novel. “Set against the harsh backdrop of Montana, “You Belong Here Now” is a novel as straightforward and powerful as the characters who populate it. I love this book, and I guarantee you won’t find a finer debut work anywhere.” – William Kent Krueger, New York Times bestselling author of “This Tender Land.”
September 1 – Carolyn Curry “Sudden Death” (this will be an EVENING EVENT – time to be announced). We look forward to meeting Carolyn and hearing about her new book. Her husband, Bill, will be joining her for this evening event. Bill played professional football with the Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Rams, and was most recently the head coach at Georgia State University.
October 11 – Jennifer Coburn “Cradles of the Reich” is a richly told historical novel of three very different women at Heim Hochland Maternity Home in Bavaria at the onset of WWII as Hitler prepares to shape his Aryan nation in terrifying ways.
