The popular Books Sandwiched In (BSI) series, sponsored by the Friends of the Beaufort Library (FOL), will return in January 2015 with local authors, well-known community leaders, journalists and world travelers lined up as presenters at this free event.
With a wide range of book selection and subject matter, including those by local authors, bestsellers and fascinating prizewinners, the series has attracted large audiences for the past 29 years. Held at the University of South Carolina Beaufort’s Center for the Performing Arts, the series schedule also leaves time after each presentation for audience Q&A.
“The Books Sandwiched In series is sponsored by the Friends of the Beaufort Library as a community awareness event meant to introduce notable Beaufort characters and their interests in books and reading to a broad audience,” said FOL President Marilyn Harcharik.
“As a volunteer charitable organization whose mission is to raise money for the library branches north of the Broad, we’re glad to be able to present this program without cost to the public, especially since the Library is operating under a drastically reduced budget.”
Although the program starts at noon, doors open at 11:30 so that attendees can meet the presenter, chat with other book lovers and enjoy complimentary coffee and cookies. Of course, donations are greatly appreciated. It is also a great time to become a “Friend” of the Beaufort County Library or renew your yearly membership.
Sponsors for this year’s event will be Palmetto Bluff, South State Bank, Stokes Brown Toyota, Verity & Verity, the law firm of Gilley, Levin and Fisher and McDonalds of Beaufort Walmart, Shell Point and Lady’s Island.
All BSI events take place at the USCB Center for Performing Arts, 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort.
