King twins return to share humor at Table Talk

March 29, 2014 10:31:51 PM



Back by popular demand, identical twins Katherine and Margaret King kick off the Friends of the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library's spring Table Talk series on Wednesday, April 2. The sisters entertained audiences last year with their memoirs, "Y'all Twins?" and were originally slated to return for February's Table Talk. Wintry weather, however, forced a reschedule. This time they introduce "Which Is Which?" -- their second book of tales about growing up in Oxford. 


The further adventures take them through their pre-teen years where they continue to get away with things that non-twins only dream of doing. Writer William Faulkner reappears in the memoir, and Katherine bets her cat-eye marble shooter that he can't figure out "which is which." He takes up the challenge; join the Friends to find out the rest of the story. 


"We're delighted to have the King sisters back in Columbus," said Friends member Jo Shumake. "They will not only tell great stories as before, but they have added -- of all things -- rapping to their repertoire. This is hard to wrap your head around, but as with all they do, this should be a real treat." 


Table Talks will be presented on Wednesdays in April at the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library, 314 Seventh St. N. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. for those wishing to bring their lunch and socialize before the program begins at noon. The Friends will serve iced tea.
