Brunch with author White at Library Oct. 29
The Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation Library will host a brunch with New York Times best-selling author Karen White Tuesday, Oct. 29, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tickets are $35 per person, which includes the book, and can be purchased at www.florencelibrary.org, the library circulation desk, or mail check to Mary Wiser, Friends of Florence County Library, 509 S. Dargan Street, Florence, S.C., 29506.
With almost two million books in print in fifteen different languages, White is the author of 24 novels, including the popular Charleston-set Tradd Street mystery series. Her roots run deep in the South where many of her novels are set. Her intricate plot lines and compelling characters charm and captivate readers with just the right mix of family drama, mystery, intrigue and romance.
Her newest novel, “The Christmas Spirits on Tradd Street,” is the highly anticipated sixth book in the Tradd Street series and will be published in October by Berkley Publishing, a division of Penguin Random House Publishing Group.
