Friends of the Library Council Report

Hello Friends,

     It is time to plan for our Friends of the Library Annual Author’s Luncheon to support the Shelbyville-Bedford County Public Library. We are excited about this year’s event since we had to cancel it last year due to the pandemic. This year’s boxed lunch event is scheduled for Tuesday,
October 12, 2020 at the Blue Ribbon Circle at noon. 

     Our featured speaker for this year at our Annual Author’s Luncheon will be June Hall McCash. Although she was scheduled for last year, Mrs. McCash agreed to join us this year.  McCash is the recipient of more than eight literary awards for fiction, poetry, and non-fiction.  She has won Georgia’s Author of the Year Award for best novel in 2011 and 2013.  She is the author of fourteen books and has recently published a new one.  In addition to her books, she has appeared in four documentaries as well as on ABC’s “Good Morning America”.  McCash spent her academic career at Middle Tennessee State University where she received awards for teaching, research and career achievements.  We look forward to June Hall McCash sharing her captivating and enlightening experiences as an author.  Mark your calendars with plans to attend this exciting event!  While times are improving, we are continuing to plan and implement out Annual Author’s Luncheon as usual with needed accommodations. The Friends of the Library are forging ahead with plans of the most
important fundraising event with which we support Shelbyville-Bedford County Public Library.  We look forward to seeing you October 12!
