Bluegrass event to benefit DeKalb libraries

The DeKalb Library Foundation will host an evening of bluegrass music and books later this year as a fundraiser for the county’s 22 branches.

The event runs from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. March 9 at the Decatur library and features mystery authors Joshilyn Jackson and Karen White in a reception, book signing and silent auction. The bluegrass band Dappled Grays will headline the event.

Tickets are $65 in advance and $75 at the door. All proceeds benefit the county’s libraries.
