Join Kimberly Mullins, who goes by K.E. Mullins for her books, Saturday, January 26 at 2:30 in Meeting Room A at Library Headquarters.
The Opinionated Ladies Book Club was founded by Cynthia Chesnut in 2008. Once a year, the club brings an African-American author to Library Headquarters to speak about his or her books. This year the club welcomes KE Mullins, who lives right here in Alachua County.
“Please join The Opinionated Ladies Book Club and The Friends of the Library,” says Cynthia Chestnut, “as we present Gainesville author K.E. Mullins, on January 26, 2:30 p.m.
Mullins, immediate past president of the Writers Alliance of Gainesville, will discuss her books, Thinking Aloud: Dimensions of Free-Verse, and her two novels: The Friends and Family Connection: Get Unplugged, and In the Company of Strangers.
Mullins began her writing career while in the Navy by venturing into poetry. Her first piece, “My One Last Cent,” was published in the literary journal, Amistad at Howard University. She currently works as a Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) Instructor in Gainesville.
She was chosen this summer to be one of eight participants in Lip Service true stories sponsored by Miami Book Fair with the theme, “Cravings with Consequences” in front of a live audience. In addition to writing poetry, Kimberley has done spoken word venues in Urban Grind, Atlanta, GA, Busboys and Poets in Washington, D.C., and the Thomas Center, Gainesville, FL.
This program is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the library thanks them for their generosity.
