Eight times a year we host well known local authors, business leaders, journalists and world travelers as they review thought provoking books. These noon meetings are at the University of South Carolina Center for the Arts in Beaufort. Come join us for this free program and enjoy complimentary coffee and cookies while you chat with the presenters and other Friends.
The Selection Committee decides who will be asked to make a presentation. These are folks who know “almost everyone” in the community. We rely on their knowledge to put together our line-up each year. If you know of someone who would make a good speaker, feel free to email us at FriendsBeaufort@gmail.com with your suggestions.
If you have never attended before, be sure to come this year – 2018 dates start January 22 and run through March 12! It is FREE and you don’t have to read the book ahead – the presenter’s job is to entice you to read the book. You will hear about the book, the author, meet the presenter, and get to know other book lovers in Beaufort.
We announce our schedule of books and presenters before the program begins each January. This event is open to all. Friends Members get advance notice. The Winter Newsletter will include Presenter Bios.
