FOL Author Events
The Friends of the Ethel K. Smith Library Annual Author’s Luncheon is made possible thanks to the generosity of Mary Louise Little. We would like to extend our appreciation for her endowment efforts. In order to meet the primary components of the Friends of the Library Mission Statement: to encourage understanding of the work of Wingate University’s Ethel K. Smith Library and to further a realization of the present and future importance of the Library to the University’s advancement, to attract to the University Library, through gifts or bequests, new resources including funds, books, manuscripts, and other appropriate material beyond what the University budget can provide, and to serve as a medium through which Friends of the Library may become acquainted with each other and share their enthusiasm for books, the FOL hosts the Annual Author’s Luncheon.
Author's Coffee and Talk
The Friends of the Library began a new tradition in the fall of 2002 by offering an academic aspect to the Wingate University Homecoming festivities. The FOL group invites local and regional authors to speak to the group. Guests enjoy a delightful author’s discussion, assorted coffees and pastries, book signings, and a chance to meet and talk with the author.
