Mississippi Twins Share Their Stories: At The Library
Don't miss these events, including a special discussion leading up to the Twins Days Festival
Join authors and identical twins Margaret and Katherine King on Friday, Aug. 3 at 4 p.m. when they share their stories of growing up in Mississippi in the 1950's.
Their experiences include hitching a ride with writer William Faulkner and pranks that only identicals can play. Copies of their memoir, Y'All Twins? will be available for purchase and signing.

Savvy Shoppers Couponing Group Share a cup of coffee and saving tips with like-minded shoppers on Thursday, August 9--and the second Thursday of every month--from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Bring a pair of scissors and your unwanted manufacturer's coupons to share. We will provide many additional advertising inserts from the Library's newspaper subscriptions for the group's use.
On August 18 at 10:30 a.m., the library will host a very special presentation by Mr. Eddie Ezaki. If you are aware of the classic book about the Japanese Internment during WWII, then Mr. Ezaki’s story will surely resonate with you. Eddie Ezaki was 9 years old when he and his family were interned in a hastily built camp in Arizona.. They were held there from shortly after Dec. 7, 1941 to after WWII. In one of the many ironies of World War II thousands of young men (Japanese Americans) from the camps volunteered to join combat infantry units and ended up wearing the same uniforms as the camp guards who kept their parents and siblings imprisoned.
