The Friends of the Library Association has announced that New York Time’s bestselling author, Karen White, will be the guest speaker at the annual fall luncheon on Sept. 25 at the Cleveland Country Club.

White writes what she refers to as “grit lit” — Southern women’s fiction— and has also expanded her horizons into writing a bestselling mystery series set in Charleston, South Carolina.

Her first book, “In the Shadow of the Moon,” was published in August 2000.

This book was nominated for the prestigious RITA award in 2001 in two separate categories. She has twice won the National Readers’ Choice Award for “Learning to Breathe” and “On Folly Beach.”

More information on FOLA luncheon and Merchant’s Alley will be forthcoming.

This month’s Book & Coffee Review held at the Craigmiles-Johnston House History Branch Library at 10 a.m. will review one of White’s recent novels, “The Time Between.”

Meg Campbell, FOLA president, will be the reviewer. As always, FOLA provides the coffee.

The Wednesday matinee on July 9 will feature “The Absent-minded Professor” (Rated G) in the Community Room at 2 p.m. Game time following the movie will continue until 5:30 p.m.
