Karin Slaughter, bestselling author and library advocate, will appear after a Curious George themed storytime for Barnes and Noble’s two-day Bookfair to benefit the Gwinnett County Public Library on Saturday, July 7th. Customers at the Norcross store can browse, enjoy stories, and sign-up for the library’s Summer Reading Program, as well as benefit the library with their purchases during the fair.
The Karin Slaughter book talk and signing will take place at 3pm, while the fundraising portion of the bookfair will take place from 9am on Saturday through 8pm on Sunday. The Curious George character visit and story time will be at 11am on Saturday morning.
Customers who specifically mention the library while checking out at this location anytime during the fundraiser can ensure that a percentage of their purchase goes to benefit the library.
“We are very grateful that Karin is such a vocal and caring advocate for libraries,” says Gwinnett County Public Library Executive Director Nancy Stanbery-Kellam. “Barnes and Noble has presented us with a fantastic opportunity to reach customers who want to support us while enjoying a day of fun for the whole family.”
