Beyond the Pages: Afternoon with Authors

February 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Douglasville, Georgia – The Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/Douglas County (CAC), in collaboration with host DC Connection, will present the return of the Annual Afternoon with Authors event at the Cultural Arts Center on Sunday, February 18th, 2024, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. From notable authors to creative poets, this year’s Afternoon with Authors promises to be an exciting day for lovers of the written word, featuring live readings and performances from their respective publications.

Since 2005, the CAC has held the Afternoon with Authors event to highlight literary artists who have published books, poems, guides, and other written materials. The day will be a celebration of literature, which will include readings and performances by local authors. Guests can also view “My Sister’s Keeper,” a CAC exhibit honoring Black History Month.

Where muralists share their stories through paint, writers, instead, share their stories through the written word. This year, Afternoon with Authors features a diverse line-up of artists: Karen Adkins, George Amos, Ingrid Landis Davis, Myoshi Garrison, Anita Hargrove, Alan Jones, Gwendolyn Parker, Mona Scott, Jessica Terry, Jalisa Smith, and Doris Wilson. From instructional guides to heart-warming vignettes of the African-American experience to the reality of historically charged events, these authors use their words to express their personal experiences through written narratives.

Event host Douglas County Connection was founded by Helen Catron in 1990. For over 30 years, the DC Connection has established, supported, and sponsored community events that enrich the cultural experience in the arts, particularly as it relates to African American culture and history.

The Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/ Douglas County, located at 8652 Campbellton Street in historic downtown Douglasville, Georgia, is open Mondays through Fridays, 9 am to 5 pm. For directions, more information, or reservations, visit www.artsdouglas.org or contact the Cultural Arts Council at (770) 949-2787.
