Some of the recipes traditional to the area that spans North Carolina to southern Georgia will be served at 6:30 p.m., with Dabney’s lecture scheduled to begin at 7 pm.
He will sign books for sale after the program. All of Dabney’s books are available at the Bartow History Museum.
Dabney and his wife live in Atlanta but he often secludes himself at his home in Euharlee while researching and writing. He has a fondness for Bartow County as his first job as a journalist was for Cartersville’s Tribune News. He graduated from Berry College, served in the Korean War and wrote a book on the C-130 Hercules during his career at Lockheed.
Dabney’s last talk in Cartersville was insightful, intriguing and inspiring, reflecting a timeless personality.
Co-sponsors of the talk and book signing, Cartersville Public Library and the Etowah Valley Historical Society are grateful to Dabney for his recognition of the need for this book, for his determination in researching the subject and organizing the material, for his dedication to producing an important resource for posterity.
The public is invited to attend at no charge.
