Olivia deBell Byrd

Get ready to laugh when this delightful Southern writer visits to talk about her book, Save My Place, and share her stories. With down-home storytelling, Olivia delves into the idiosyncrasies and colloquialisms of the Deep South. Characters and experiences drawn from funerals, fund-raising coffees, beauty pageants, sorority reunions, a Christmas party (where the author attempts to converse with a woman wearing blinking Christmas tree earrings) and Sunday church (where a mink coat is mistaken for possum).

Free for Guild members; $10 for nonmembers.

Reservations are recommended: litguildssi@gmail.com or 912-289-7357.
