A special reading and discussion featuring a local author. All ages welcome.
Longino retired from a 30-year corporate career in 2012 to travel and pursue her lifelong dream of writing fiction. A native of Marietta, Longino attended the University of Alabama where she received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in journalism. Sarah’s Way is her first published novel.
The Cherokee County resident drew upon her knowledge of local history to write and publish a historical novel set in the gold-mining boomtown of Auraria in Lumpkin County.
“North Georgia has a rich and compelling history,” said Donna Longino,“From the nation’s first gold rush to the Civil War, the area is ripe with stories that are waiting to be told.”
