Dudley Sykes to speak at Pearl Library's Brown Bag Luncheon, January 25th

Books may be purchased in the library, or online at
The Pearl Library is so excited that Dudley Sykes will be reading from and talking about his new novel, The Lynching of Malcolm Brown at this month's Brown Bag Luncheon on January 25th!

Sykes is a lifetime member of the Friends of the Pearl Library and has always been a huge supporter of this library. In his latest novel, he tells a fictionalized account of a lynching of a man in Jones County, Mississippi in 1941. Sykes wrote this novel in honor of his father, who stood up to a group of men who wanted him to lead a lynching mob. Sykes has already inspired several of our staff member to read this tale, and we hope that you'll come out to hear about it on Friday!

The Brown Bag Luncheon is on Friday at 12:00 p.m. in the Pearl Library meeting room. Bring a sack lunch, and the Friends of the Pearl Library will provide drinks and dessert. You may purchase The Lynching of Malcolm Brown for $16.99, and $2.00 will be donated to the Friends of the Library for each book purchased on this date.
