audience listening to a guest speaker in a meeting room at Bolivar County Library System

The Friends of the Bolivar County Library System host the Lunch With Books program at the Robinson-Carpenter Memorial Library on the 2nd Thursday each month from September through May. The program features Mississippi authors and other guest speakers of local interest to the community.

A book signing follows most programs. Books are available for purchase to be signed by the author either at the program or by preordering – each month’s flyer will specify which option is available for that program. If the flyer specifies preordering and you want to purchase a book, contact Virginia O’Neal at Cotton Row Bookstore (Cleveland) at (662) 843-7083 by the date listed on the flyer and your book will be available at the program. If you want to preorder a book to be signed by the author, but can’t attend a program, let Ms. O’Neal know when you call and she will have your signed book available for you to pick up at Cotton Row Bookstore following that program.

We invite you bring your lunch to the library and enjoy an exciting Lunch With Books program. Admission is free and soft drinks are provided.
