May Hometown Novel Nights
A Special hybrid event!

NEWNAN, Ga., May 2021 - Join the Newnan Carnegie Library and Hometown Novel Nights on Thursday, May 20, 2021, at 6:30 pm for this special hybrid event where you can either join us in-person at the Newnan Carnegie Library (limited seating) or virtually over Zoom! See the Carnegie Eventbrite page to register!

This even stars three very different authors with three very different styles of the genre that they write in: Donna Black, Mike Nemeth, and David William Allman. Each author will share about themselves, their writing journey, and their latest book(s). Books will be available to purchase from the Carnegie or Corner Arts Gallery & Studios (our event sponsors). This event will be recorded in case you can't make it at the scheduled time.

Writer, mom, project manager, photography, traveler, University of Tennessee horticulturist, and native plant and animal devotee, Donna lives, works, writes, and frets in Fayetteville, GA, where she and her husband have raised two kids to the age of self-sufficiency. Donna H. Black writes fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

Mike Nemeth is a retired IT executive living in suburban Atlanta with his wife, Angie, and their rescue dogs, Sophie and Scout. The novels Defiled (Amazon bestseller) and The Undiscovered Country (winner of the Beverly Hills Book Award for Southern Fiction) are prescriptions for America's social ills disguised as crime fiction thrillers. Mike is also a sports fan and has written nonfiction books about college basketball and college football.

David William Allman graduated from Georgia Southern University in 1970 and became a software engineer. He and his wife moved several times from one side of Atlanta to the other. When their parents passed away, they downsized to a more rural setting south of Atlanta. Their three children are grown, but they all live in the Atlanta area, blessing them with six grandchildren. He writes historical fiction and historical nonfiction.
