The Adult Summer Reading Program is still sizzling at the Pearl Public Library as the celebration of Literary Elements (ASRP theme) continues!
Come, join the Chapter 1 Book Club gathering on Thurs. July 10 at 6 p.m. to discuss the life of writer/ journalist Rick Bragg as written in his autobiography All Over but the Shoutin'.
Poverty ridden, Bragg grew up in Alabama with an unpromising future ahead of him. Somehow Bragg defied the odds and landed at The New York Times where he won a Pulitzer Prize. In this hold-nothing-back account, Bragg tells about the horrors of living with an alcoholic father, and shares his saintly mother's inspiring suffering and bravery in a moving story filled with brutal honesty.
You don't want to miss this Chapter 1 Book Club meeting! No reservations required, and you don't have to be a member to attend. Just stop on by.
You know it's ALWAYS good at the Pearl Public Library!
We'll see you there!
