Books Sandwiched In returns

in Arts/Community by

The Friends of the Beaufort Library have announced the 2020 schedule for the popular 8-week annual Books Sandwiched In series, featuring book talks by local personalities to provoke interest in books; both fiction and non-fiction.

After each talk presenters will welcome questions.

The programs are held on Mondays (except Jan. 20) from noon to 1 p.m. through March 2. The public is invited to this free series at USCB Center for the Arts, 805 Carteret Street, Beaufort.

“Each week we get to enjoy a wide-ranging, lively discussion with home-made refreshments and terrific raffle prizes donated by civic-minded local businesses — a wonderful way to celebrate a new year with other book lovers in Beaufort!” Friends President Carol Brown said.

“I look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new book lovers and library friends. Mark your calendars! I will see you there!” BSI co-chair Vicki Mix said.

The Friends of the Beaufort Library is an all-volunteer organization that supports the Beaufort, Lobeco and St. Helena libraries. For more information, visit friendsoftheBeaufortlibrary.com.
