Stories from Poulan is Now at the Library

Look who made a visit to Sylvester and to The Margaret Jones Public Library. Harris West visited the library to present his book, Stories From Poulan, to the Margaret Jones Public Library. The staff at the library encourages you to come by and check out this book about his experience growing up in Poulan. The Martin News purchased a copy several months ago and enjoyed reading up on the days from Poulan. Be sure to stop by and check yours out today. This book recounts the author’s experience of growing-up and coming of age in a small cotton mill town in south Georgia during the Post Depression Era. Poverty is the prevailing theme and is interwoven with religion, sex, death, violence, segregation, and family relationships. It’s great to be able to have authors from our home town and area to bring back stories of the past to us now and for our children in the future. Thank you Mr. Harris for providing Margaret Jones Public Library with a copy of your book for others to enjoy.
