Local authors to visit branches of SML this fall

Upcoming Author Visits

We’re excited to host a variety of upcoming author visits at our libraries! Come and hear a new children’s book by a local firefighter, explore emotions in a new book of poetry, learn about the intersection between science and Christianity, and go back in time with family members of Crazy Horse. All of these events are free and open to the public.

On Monday, November 12 at 4 p.m., our Broadmoor Branch will host Adam MacDaniels, author of the children’s book Hotshot Bernie. MacDaniels is a professional firefighter/paramedic with a passion for writing. His works range from picture books to young adult books that are wholesome and family-friendly. During the program, MacDaniels will read his book followed by a crafts and activities session. The event will take place in the meeting room at the branch. Children are invited to participate. RSVP to the Facebook Event.

Our Hamilton/ South Caddo Branch presents local author Tiffany Pennywell on Friday, November 16 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Pennywell will launch her latest work, Face and Embrace Yourself, a book of poetry. Pennywell is a Louisiana-born artist and has been writing since 1996. She enjoys writing poetry, short stories, lyrics, screenplays, and fan-fiction. Face and Embrace Yourself focuses on the full range of human emotion and why we should embrace those feelings, no matter how uplifting or destructive. Adults are encouraged to attend the program. The book talk and signing will take place in the large meeting room at the branch. Copies of the book will be available for $8. RSVP to the Facebook Event.

Join us at our North Shreveport Branch as we present Dr. Mack Crayton and his book, Brain, Mind, Soul and Spirit: The Interface Between Science and Scripture.
