You may think you are seeing double when Friends of the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library kick off February's Table Talk with the book, "Y'all Twins?" Mississippi authors Katherine and Margaret King will share tales from their first book on Wednesday, Feb. 6, in the second floor meeting room of the public library located at 314 Seventh St. N, in Columbus.
In the 1950s these identical twin sisters did what we all secretly might want to do. They got away with everything. Why? Because they could! From the first time they swapped classes, they never looked back. Based in Oxford, their stories begin at age 6 when they hopped a ride on the back of a wagon driven by, unbeknownst to them, a famous member of the community -- William Faulkner.
Follow the King twins from first through sixth grade and experience the kind of antics only twins can share. Their shenanigans will have you laughing with them and at them as they take advantage of looking exactly alike. Join Katherine (the mastermind) and Margaret (the co-conspirator) for a nostalgic trip down a memory lane that has led them to become the people they are.
Friends of the Library board member as well as personal friend of the two, Bill Andrews, says of the twins, "Their book has been well received by readers everywhere, particularly in the South, due to the humor and honesty they put into telling their hilariously true stories. The sisters had everyone laughing when they appeared on the Fox Network's "Fox and Friends" this past August. Come hear this amazing pair and I dare you to try to pick out which is which at the end of the program."
Bring lunch and gather at 11:30 a.m. to socialize. Iced tea is always on hand. The twins will tell stories from noon until 1 p.m. The program is free. Everyone is welcome.
