Local Author to Speak at Friends of the Library Annual Meeting
The Friends of the Central Rappahannock Regional Library will hold their annual meeting from 7 – 8:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, 2016, at Headquarters Library, 1201 Caroline St. in Fredericksburg.
Ronnie Sidney, author of two graphic novels for young readers, “Nelson Beats the Odds” and is the guest speaker. Growing up in Tappahannock, Sidney struggled with ADHD and was placed in special education classes. This experience inspired him to write the autobiographical “Nelson Beats the Odds”, and to reach out to young people coping with disabilities. He also wrote “Tameka’s New Dress”. His third book, “R.I.P. RaShawn”, will be published this fall.
Sidney’s books will be available for purchase and signing. Refreshments will be served.
The Friends of the Central Rappahannock Regional Library enhance library offerings and support the library by providing funding for books and other library materials, early literacy programming, STEM classes and MakerLabs, and many other classes and events. The Friends are a 501c3 nonprofit. For more information about the Friends and to join, visit their website: www.crrlfriends.org
