Renowned Episcopal priest, former Piedmont professor, author and theologian Barbara Brown Taylor will be the featured guest speaker later this month at an author luncheon hosted by the Friends of the Clarkesville Library.
On Saturday, Oct. 23rd, the Friends of the Clarkesville Library host a Book and Author Luncheon, featuring Barbara Brown Taylor. Taylor is the author of New York Times Bestsellers “Leaving Church,” “An Altar in the World,” and “Holy Envy.”
“It’ll be a wonderful experience,” says Friends of the Clarkesville Library Vice President Cathy Steinhauer.
Taylor’s reputation speaks volumes, and her awards, like being one of TIME Magazine’s Most Influential People of 2014 and 2015 Georgia Woman of the Year tell even more about her dedication to her work. Taylor was also named one of the world’s most effective preachers in a landmark survey of clergy by Baylor University.
The event on the 23 will be held in the Fellowship Hall of the Clarkesville First United Methodist Church, at 12:00 p.m.; tickets are $25 and may be purchased at the Clarkesville Library until Saturday, October 16, at 1:00 P.M.
“All the money [raised] goes to supporting programs at the library,” Steinhauer says. “[Like] buying new books and doing things for the children. It’s just a win-win and whichever way you look at it, she is going to be a wonderful speaker and it’s for a very good cause.”
