Selma-Dallas County Public Library Executive Director  Becky Nichols said they are grateful to have talented and successful authors speak.

“We are lucky each month to attract authors from all over the country,” Nichols said. “Once they have been to Selma, they taste the hospitality and graciousness of our community. That spreads a positive word about Selma to other places and faces- and that is a good thing.’’

Tickets for the event are still available. The cost is $15. Call the library at 874 1725 or email dana
