The Friends of the Clarkesville Library welcomes acclaimed folk artist and author Linda Anderson as the featured speaker at its annual Book and Author Luncheon at noon Saturday, March 16, at Piedmont Colleges Brookside Dining Room.
Anderson, a self-taught artist, was raised in the shadow of Mount Yonah, and many of her works depict scenes from her childhood. Her book, “Flashes of Memory: An Appalachian Self-Portrait,” is a collection of paintings and comments as presented in her one-woman show at the High Museum of Arts Folk and Photography Galleries in the winter of 2004. The book, produced by Kennesaw State University Press, will be available at the luncheon for purchase and autographs by the artist.
Anderson’s work is in the permanent collections of Atlanta’s High Museum of Art and New York City’s Whitney Museum of American Art. A resident of Habersham County, she has been featured in a series presented by Georgia Public Television, and was one of the authors honored at the 2011 Georgia Literary Festival.
Tickets for the event are $25 and include a buffet lunch. They may be purchased at the Clarkesville Library.
