Karin Slaughter on libraries, Lee Child & her favorite Flannery O’Connor quote

New-York Times bestselling author Karin Slaughter is as fun to listen to as she is to read.

She was kind enough to allow an interview when she visited us for a book signing this summer. She discussed:

  • her love of libraries. In addition to her work as a writer, Karin is founder of the Save the Libraries project—a nonprofit organization established to support libraries.
  • saving money to buy books when she worked for minimum wage.
  • her favorite quote from one of her favorite authors, Flannery O’Connor.
  • what books she’s reading now.

Ohio Markley coverBy the way, if you love meaning your favorite authors, we have more guests coming this autumn.

Stephen Markley – author of the critically acclaimed novel Ohio – is coming to Lakeland Community College as part of the Lake-Geauga League of Libraries’ Off-the-Page author series.

He’ll discuss his newest novel and answer questions from the audience. Copies of Ohio will also be available for sale and signing, courtesy of Mac’s Backs bookstore.

Markley will speak at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 12, at the Dr. Wayne L Rodehorst Performing Arts Center on the first floor of the college’s D building.

His author talk is free to attend and open to all.
