Smyrna Reads! Hosts Author

20121001-until-tuesdayWhat if everyone in Smyrna read the same book? Wouldn’t that be a good way to start a discussion with friends, neighbors, family members or someone you just met?

The Library has 50 copies of the New York Times bestseller, “Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him,” as well as ten copies of “Tuesday Tucks Me In,” a non-fiction picture book for children. Books are available for check out from the “Smyrna Reads” display at the Front Desk.

In the month of September, we will have book discussions, a visit from the author, and a big finale with our “Bark in the Park” family event.

Smyrna Public Library will host New York Times bestselling author, Luis Carlos Montalván, on Sept. 23, at the Smyrna Community Center.

Montalván is the author of the memoir, Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him.

His appearance with his therapy dog, Tuesday, will be one of the final events in a series of programs for “Smyrna Reads.” Events include book discussions, the author event, and the closing program, “Bark in the Park.”
