Mid-Columbia Libraries to give away new books

Mid-Columbia Libraries will give away hundreds of copies of two books in advance of visits in August by the authors as part of the library system's summer reading program.

Matt Bondurant, author of The Wettest County in the World, will visit the Kennewick branch library Aug. 2. Kimberly Derting, author of The Body Finder, will visit Aug. 9. Both author visits will be at 7 p.m.

People can pick up a copy at any branch library while book clubs may request copies by sending an email to MCLPrograms@midcolumbialibraries.org. Copies will be handed out as long as supplies last.
