Author Lauretta Hannon will be bringing her “Southern with Attitude Tour” to the Dog River Library at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, June 22nd, and hosting what she calls “a good ‘ol book talk” about her new memoir “The Cracker Queen”. The event with Ms. Hannon is open to the Public with free admission. The Dog River Library is located at 6100 Georgia Highway 5.
“The Cracker Queen – A Memoir of a Jagged, Joyful Life” shows a different kind of Southern girl – the anti-Southern Belle – and takes readers from backwater Warner Robins to the eccentric side of Savannah and features a wild and crazy family. The Georgia Center for the Book classifies it as “one of the top 25 books all Georgians should read”.
Ms. Hannon is a resident of historic downtown Powder Springs, and has been a commentator on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered”. Since 2000 she has also been known for her Georgia Public Radio stories which celebrate strong, authentic Southern women (“Cracker Queens”). In 2010 she became a Hambidge Fellow at the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences.
Copies of “The Cracker Queen” will be available for purchase at the book talk.
The Dog River Library is a program of the Douglas County Board of Commissioners.
