The Newnan Carnegie Library and Newnan Carnegie Library Foundation presents author Carolyn Curry

The Newnan Carnegie Library and the Newnan Carnegie Library Foundation are proud to welcome author, Carolyn Curry to the Carnegie on Sunday, September 25th at 2:30 pm as a part of the Edgar B. Hollis Distinguished Author Series.

Carolyn Newton Curry is an award-winning author, historian, and non-profit founder and director of Women Alone Together®. She holds a BA from Agnes Scott College and a MA and PhD from Georgia State University. In 2014, she published Suffer and Grow Strong: The Life of Ella Gertrude Clanton Thomas 1834-1907.

Her new book, Sudden Death is a murder mystery set in the world of football and written by a woman who has lived her entire life as the wife of a player and coach. But it is more than a whodunit. In the guise of a mystery, there is an insightful look at the troubling aspects of gambling in sports, addiction, spouse abuse, and death threats to coaches and their wives. But a far more meaningful message is the survival and triumph of the human spirit. Finally, it is a love story between a man and woman who are committed to one another and their desire to make the world a better place.

A book signing will follow Dr. Curry’s author talk.

Registration is requested and can be made through Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/388230777707
