Events are approaching for those still turning the pages of this summer's Forsyth Reads Together book selection, "Murder on the Orient Express."
The Forsyth County Public Library system will hold an event tonight at the Sharon Forks Library. Guest speaker Terri Leidich of A La Carte Travel will describe the real-life Orient Express, as well as the North American Express.
She will take the audience on an "armchair traveling experience," according to Nicole McCoy, executive director of Forsyth County Community Connection, one of the program's sponsors.
"It helps make the book a little bit of a reality," McCoy said. "It will be fun to watch."
A second event, set for Thursday night at the Cumming branch of the library, may also be of interest to readers of the Agatha Christie novel, McCoy said.
North Georgia College & State University professor Brian Jay Corrigan is scheduled to talk about the book and its author.
The Certified Literate Community Program and Community Connection marked the inaugural book selection at a celebration in June, where attendees were treated to dramatic re-enactments.
The final event for this summer's reading program will be a spelling bee Aug. 12 at the Forsyth Central High School performing arts theater. Words for the contest will be pulled from "Murder on the Orient Express."
Tonight's event is set for 6:30 at the Sharon Forks branch, while Thursday's event will be held at the same time at the Cumming library branch.
