Keith Donnelly, the author of the Donald Youngblood mystery series, will speak at The Friends of the Union County Public Library’s Winter Author Dinner. The event takes place Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. at South Piedmont Community College Conference Center in Monroe.
The Friends of Union County Public Library funds various programs offered at the library’s four branches. Last summer the group was a sponsor of the library’s Summer Reading Program for children and teens in Union County.
Donnelly writes mysteries featuring private investigator Donald Youngblood. Donnelly grew up in east Tennessee. After a career as a book manufacturing sales representative, Donnelly retired in 2009 to become a full-time writer. He is currently working on a fourth Donald Youngblood mystery.
The Winter Author Dinner is one of the major fundraising activities of The Friends of the Union County Public Library. Tickets are $35 and are available by calling Renee Hottle at 704-907-9190 or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
