Photos from the Alexander McCall Smith

We have some great photos from our author event. This past Sunday Western Supermarkets sponsored a fantastic author event with the best-selling writer Alexander McCall Smith whose series The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency has been translated into over 39 languages and sold over seven million copies worldwide.

Mr. McCall Smith was charming, funny and everything this library and his fans hoped he would be. His talk "The Very Small Things Of Life" won the crowd over.

Here are some great photos of the event ...

Our director, Sue Murrell, with the author, Alexander McCall Smith this past Sunday.

Our Adult Services Department with the author just after the signing. Mary Donlevy (front left - in black) , one of our librarians, received a poem from Mr. McCall Smith that he had just written after his talk.

We heard from our local bookstore, Jonathan Benton, that they sold out of all his children's books they brought, as well as his new book The Good Husband of Zebra Drive.

Again we would like to thank Western Supermarkets for sponsoring such a great event. Our library and its patrons truly enjoyed this special afternoon!

If you would like information on future events such as this one, or the Western Supermarkets annual Wine Event, please email our Adult Services Librarian, Katie M. at
