The event will be held at the church, located at 770 Canton Highway, Cumming. The book is available for check out at the library in print, eBook, CD Audiobook, and eAudiobook formats. Barnes & Noble will have copies of the book available for purchase at the event.
Other books in our #ShelfLife feed this week took us on a trip to Havana, Cuba and back in time to ancient Rome. But the most fun we had this week came during storytimes at the Cumming Library, where our youngest patrons enjoyed "horsing around" with our youth services staff. We had so much fun reading horse-themed books that we wanted to share a list of ten books for pony-loving patrons on our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten blog.
We hope you've found a good book to read this weekend; but, if you haven't, we'll be here waiting for you at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. Happy Friday, friends!

You might be tempted to think of Margaret George’s THE CONFESSIONS OF A YOUNG NERO as the ancient Roman equivalent of HOUSE OF CARDS. After all, young Nero has learned a harsh lesson about controlling the empire: it is better to be cruel than dead. #ShelfLife #margaretgeorge #ancientrome #nero #historicalfiction #houseofcards #bookstagram #librariesofinstagram
Once the only country Americans couldn't visit, Cuba is now opening to us, as is Havana, not only by plane or boat but also through this portrait of the long-elusive city. Part cultural history, part travelogue, with recipes, historic engravings, photographs, and Kurlansky's own pen-and-ink drawings, you could take a mini-vacation without leaving your couch when you check out HAVANA: A SUBTROPICAL DELIRIUM by Mark Kurlansky, on library shelves now. #ShelfLife #nonfiction #minivacation #tropical #cuba #havana #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram
