We are delighted to host a special appearance by the prize-winning author Frances Mayes, a Georgia native who is one of America’s most popular writers (”Under the Tuscan Sun,” ”Bella Tuscany”) and whose work is represented on the Georgia Center for the Book’s new list of ”25 Books All Georgians Should Read.” She’ll be here to talk about her latest book, ”Every Day in Tuscany,” a lovely, inspiring look at her favorite place in the world. She offers a wonderful tour through the gentle, occasionally violent, undulations of the seasons, from winter to summer, from her Tuscan home. Critics say ”Mayes’ affectionate and warm memoir vividly celebrates the lush abundance and charm of daily life in the Italian countryside.” We hope you’ll join us to welcome a ”native” back home for what promises to be a memorable evening. We’ll have copies of her books for sale and signing here, of course. First Baptist Church Decatur is located at 308 Clairemont Ave., Decatur, GA 30030
