Books & Brews
An Evening with Authors and Artisanal Beer Aficionados-  Ron Smith and Mary O. Boyle @ Slow Pour Brewing Company

Join us for a book and beer talk with Ron and Mary. From Atlanta's first brewery in the 1850s to the city's Saloon Row and the parched days of local and national Prohibition, the earliest days of Atlanta's beer history are laced with scandal and excitement. Follow the journey of beer through Atlanta's development, starting with colonial Georgia and the budding wilderness settlement of Terminus and eventually evolving into the ever-growing metropolis known as Atlanta. Authors Ron Smith and Mary Boyle celebrate the resurgence of craft beer in a town that once burned to the ground.

Your ticket is your Gwinnett County Library Card. Don't have one? Sign up on site! Seating is first come first served, and every guest will receive one complimentary 16oz beverage.
