Let's Read Together, Wilkes! YOUTH SERVICES

The Dry Grass of August
by Anna Jean Mayhew


Come by and pick up a copy at the Library to read! A.J. Mayhew visits Wilkes on Thursday, October 8. She'll be at Wilkes Community College at 1:30 pm, then here starting at 5:00 pm. The Friends of the Wilkes Library will welcome her and all of us with a reception, followed by this author reading her fine work and signing copies. Books will be on sale that day, too.

The Dry Grass of August "offers a riveting depiction of Southern life in the throes of segregation and what it will mean for a young girl on her way to adulthood and for the woman who means the world to her." (courtesy of Goodreads) Enjoy this story about a Charlotte family in the summer of 1954.
