Author Jerrold Peeler is weaving true and half-true stories from upstate South Carolina into a trilogy of novels tracing a local family's fortunes from before the Civil War. His first two books are Thicketty and Trinity, with the third and final book still to come. The author will speak at a free library program, and copies of his books will be available for sale. The Friends of the Library will provide refreshments. No registration is required.
