The Friends of the Central Rappahannock Regional Library will hold their annual meeting on Monday, October 24, 7:00-8:30 PM, at Headquarters Library, 1201 Caroline Street. Refreshments will be served. If you are not currently a Friend, you can join at the door or online.

Ronnie Sidney, author of two graphic novels for young readers, Nelson Beats the Odds and Tameka’s New Dress, will be the guest speaker. Growing up in Tappahannock, Sidney struggled with ADHD and was placed in special education classes. This experience inspired him to write the autobiographical Nelson Beats the Odds and to reach out to young people coping with disabilities. Sidney’s third book, R.I.P. RaShawn, will be published this fall. Sidney’s books will be available for purchase and signing.
