We’re going to party -- with bagpipes! -- this evening when the executive director of the Georgia Center for the Book takes the stage with his own book! We invite you to join Bill and find out about his delightfully intriguing and witty new book, ”Whisky, Kilts, and the Loch Ness Monster: Traveling Through Scotland with Boswell and Johnson.” It’s a lively account of the author’s re-tracing of the amazing 1773 journey through the Scottish Highlands by James Boswell and Samuel Johnson. Part travelogue, part literary journal, it’s a ”celebration of Scottish life and a spirited endorsement of the unexpected discoveries to be made through good travel and good literature.” It’s a book for all those who love Scotland, its legends and history, its single malts and its kilts. We invite you to come celebrate with us and buy a book; we’ll have a special reception to go with this very special program honoring one of our own! Thanks to Doug Robinson at Eagle Eye Books, there will be a kilted bagpiper to escort the author to the stage, so be sure to mark this event on your calendar. Please note that the Decatur Library will be closed for a furlough day on December 6, but this event will go on as scheduled. Admission will be through the auditorium door at the rear of the lower parking level. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Eagle Eye Books has advance copies for sale now, and they’ll have plenty on hand for sale and signing at this event.
