The 4th Annual Dalton State Book Festival is set for April 17. The speaker and author this year will be Terry Kay. He is scheduled at the Brown Center for two programs at 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., both followed by autograph sessions. The book Mr. Kay will discuss and read is The Book of Marie.
The Book of Marie is about two high school students coming of age in 1955 during the early years of the Civil Rights movement. It is set in a small Georgia town very similar to our area. The narrative follows their lives from their high school prom to their 50th class reunion and some of the life changes experienced in that time.
