The Dual County Defenders played a role in the Catoosa Citizens for Literacy One Book One Community event featuring “A Badge of an Old Guitar” by Randall Franks. Hosted with the Catoosa County Library, the CCL seeks to bring the community together by reading and discussing one book.
Members of the Dual County Defenders are teens who volunteer to raise the awareness of underage drinking, and encourage drug abuse prevention. They presented excerpts from the book entertaining attendees while Mr. Franks provided a look behind the book’s creation and performed the song that catapults the main character’s story forward.
Readers can check out a copy of the book at the library, stop by the Catoosa County Learning Center, 36 Muscogee Trail, in Ringgold, or at http://randallfranks.com/store or www.Amazon.com/author/randallfranks/. Locally books are also available at Sonshine Christian Bookstore in Fort Oglethorpe, UnikTings!, Stuff 4 Less, and Cottage Treasures in Ringgold.
