Bestselling author Janelle Brown to visit Carmel Clay Public Library


By Renee Larr

New York Times bestselling author Janelle Brown will visit the Carmel Clay Public Library at 6:30 p.m. July 25 in the Program Room. She will discuss her latest work, “Watch Me Disappear.” The event is part of the Foundation Guild’s Visiting Author Series.


“Our volunteer group started this visiting author series a little over a year ago,” said Liz Hamilton, Carmel Clay Public Library Foundation director. “They bring in six to eight authors annually into the library. We’ve been very successful with this program. Our guild members just rally around planning these, and they do an excellent job for the library.”

Brown has written three novels, and her essays have appeared in numerous publications.

“We were approached to host Janelle. Obviously, once you read a little about her and her past, you realize why we wanted her to come to our library,” Hamilton said. “I’m so excited to bring her in because I feel like she’s someone a lot of our patrons will enjoy listening to and be able to identify with.”

Brown will present her book, conduct a Q&A session and a book signing. Books will be available for purchase.

“Part of the proceeds from those book sales do come back and benefit the library through the foundation,” Hamilton said.

The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served in keeping with the book’s theme.

“There is a recipe that is talked about in the book and ties in with the book,” Hamilton said. “Our guild members will be doing a little bit of baking and making something.”
