SYLACAUGA, Ala. – B.B. Comer Memorial Library’s Adult Brown Bag Series audiences have enjoyed great presenters and interesting topics for more than twenty years. The weekly, Wednesday lunch series will resume starting Sept. 13. This year’s theme, “Time Slips Away,” will not disappoint with an array of stories from the past, as well as stories addressing many of today’s topics.
Library Director Tracey Thomas said she is proud to continue the adult lecture series tradition. Thomas said the established Brown Bag audience, as well as newcomers, are invited to welcome rhythm and blues singer Elnora Spencer, to kick off the series with her beautiful vocals and combination of keyboard, bass, and drum talents.
“After Elnora’s ‘jazzy blues’ kick-off, we will have refreshments at 11:00 a.m. and programs at 12:00 p.m. for the next seven weeks,” said Thomas. “That’s a big commitment and we appreciate those who help make this possible — the volunteers, the attentive audience, the talented presenters, and the sponsors — SouthFirst Bank, B. B. Comer Library Foundation, and Coosa Valley Medical Center. We also appreciate [RadioAlabama/Yea!106.5/WYEA!1290] and other media outlets for getting the word out that food, fellowship, and ‘painless learning’ awaits at the Comer Library!”
