Author Visit at the Maysville Public Library

Life, laughter, and happily ever-afters is what Laurie Kozlowski lives by. Laurie is a life long Jackson County resident and author. “Serendipity Summer” is her first published novel.

Laurie will be at the Maysville Public Library, 9247 Gillsville Road, Maysville, GA on Saturday, November 15th at 11am. She is offering a special giveaway to a lucky attendee. The book will be available for purchase and signing. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

Theresa Rice and Sonya Carlen have been showcased at programs at the Banks County Public Library. And Dr. Joe Braselton Cook had a book signing at the Braselton Library.
