Valentine’s Day: For the Love of Books (and Book Events)

The Jimmy Carter Library & Museum would like to wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day this week! If you are still looking for something to do on February 14th this year, the Carter Library will be hosting the following author reading and book signing for those of you in or near the Atlanta area:

Book events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. Please always visit us online for the most up to date information regarding our events and additional details on the books to be discussed. Directions can be found online. We do hope that you will be able to pay us a visit!

These events have me thinking… If the focus of February is often thought of as being about Love, then why not a love of books (and book events!) We’d love to know…what books or authors have had an impact on your life?
