books 100 ThingsThe Friends of the Beaufort Library have announced the 2020 schedule for their popular 8-week annual Books Sandwiched In series, featuring book talks by local personalities to provoke interest in books: both fiction and non-fiction. After each talk presenters will welcome questions.


 The programs are held on Mondays (except January 20) from noon to 1 PM, January 6 – March 2. The public is invited to this free series at USCB Center for the Arts, 805 Carteret Street, Beaufort.

“Each week we get to enjoy a wide-ranging, lively discussion with home-made refreshments and terrific raffle prizes donated by civic-minded local businesses—a wonderful way to celebrate a new year with other book lovers in Beaufort!” says Carol Brown, Friends President. 

“I look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new book lovers and library friends. Mark your calendars! I will see you there!” says BSI co-chair Vicki Mix.  For program details, email Vicki Mix at
