Four authors hailing from Georgia will pour on the Southern charm Saturday during a presentation and book signing at the Columbia County Library.
Guests can enter the Jabez Sanford Hardin Performing Arts Center at no charge to see the four women, who call themselves the Dixie Darlin's, in action.
"They give a lively presentation peppered with advice, animation and lots of anecdotes," said Columbia County Library Director Mary Lin Maner.
The writers who make up the group are Julie Cannon, author of Truelove & Homegrown Tomatoes and 'Mater Biscuit ; J.L. Miles, author of Cold Rock River and Roseflower Creek ; Patricia Sprinkle, author of the Thoroughly Southern Mysteries series; and Karin Gillespie, author of The Bottom Dollar Girls series.
Gillespie lives in Augusta, while the other three authors live in various cities throughout Georgia.
"The Dixie Darlin's are four Southern book-writing belles serving up helpings of down-home humor and warmth," according to Miles' Web site. "Each Dixie Darlin' has a personality of her own."
Doors to the performing arts center will open at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7 p.m.
After the presentation, sweets will be served to patrons followed by a book signing with each writer.
"I have heard that they're just real Southern, and it's kind of like their own little informative comedy act," Maner said. "It's some good ol' Southern fun."
The event is part of the Columbia County Reads Together program.
Registration is not required. The theater can seat 296 people. For information, call (706) 863-1946 or visit www.columbiacountyga.gov.
