After a full house for the first session, the Carrabelle Branch of the Franklin County Public Libraries continues its exciting writers’ series entitled, “Pen to Paper” with two fascinating programs in February. The first February program will be held on Monday, February 13, at 2:00 pm and will feature Sidsel ‘Sid’ McOmie and Michael Llado-Davila. Then on Monday, February 27 at 2:00 pm, the library will feature Pat Duggan and Robin Hilton. The Carrabelle Branch Library is located at 311 St. James Avenue, Carrabelle, FL.

The authors at these two sessions will discuss and share the works they have written and those they are working on now, followed by a question and answer session. This friendly and informal event will be a wonderful chance to meet and greet these local authors personally and is open to anyone interested in learning more about these writers or writing in general or those who just love reading. Refreshments from Sid McOmie’s cookbook will be served.

Sidsel ‘Sid’ McOmie is an author of several cookbooks including “Nibbles and Bites” and has just written a suspense thriller set in the local area. Michael Llado-Davila considers himself a traveler, writer, social critic, and human rights advocate and is a writer of travel memoirs. Pat Duggan has written several books including a mystery fiction book set in Apalachicola called, “Murder at Eagles Nest”.  Robin Hilton is the author of “Edge of the High: Quarter Century of Sailing Around the World”, a non-fiction book about her and her husband’s sailing adventures as well as writing several futurist mysteries.
