Pate launches new book at Library chocolate tasting party
Friends of the Atlanta Public Library kicked off the first day of summer with a Chocolate Party last Thursday that had quite a turnout.
At least 125 people stopped by to indulge in chocolate treats and to meet Brittany Lamb Pate, Queen City native who wrote “Fire’s Kiss.”
Pate was challenged by her grandmother when, at 8 years of age, she complained about how a book ended. Her grandmother told her to write a book with a better ending, and she did.
She has copious notes and said, “I have a lot more written about my characters than has gone into this book.”
“So all you fans who have purchased her book, she sold out,” said Fern Porter. “Look for another book coming soon. In fact, we can all support Brittany by voting for her book at https://www.tckpublishing.com/2018-readers-choice-voting-page/. Her book recently fell to number two spot, so help put it back on top.”
Barbara Davis was the winner of the door prize, which she won by correctly completing the scavenger hunt. Many people were running all over the library trying to find the answers to win the prize which consisted of at least $140 in gift cards from our downtown restaurants and merchants.
Several people also won coloring books.
“The Friends encourage the community to support our library that is always changing thanks to Director Jackie Icenhower’s innovative ideas for new programs,” said Porter. “People joined Friends at the party and more are encouraged to join Friends. Stop by the Library when convenient. If you missed all the chocolate, well, maybe next year.”
