Library hosts Dr. Clifton Meador Friday

by gbcpl on June 4, 2015

20x24_stadiumGreenville native Dr. Clifton Meador joins us on Friday, June 5 at 4 p.m. for a signing of his new book, Sketches of a Small Town…Circa 1940.

About the Book: For a boy coming of age during the 1930s and ’40s, Greenville, Alabama, a small cotton-farming town in the Deep South, was a wonderfully rich environment. Greenville may have been small, but for author Clifton K. Meador, MD, life growing up there was anything but dull. In his memoir Sketches of a Small Town…circa 1940, Meador lovingly retells the stories that formed his values and shaped his life. For young Clifton and his friends, there’s plenty of trouble to stir up, ranging from a field fire, to buzzard hunting, to fights between the “country boys” and the “city boys,” and, of course, girls

Dr. Meador has graciously agreed to donate portions of the proceeds from any books he sells back to the library. Please come out and support this event!
