Charlotte's library hosts Dorothea Benton Frank, queen of beach reads

Since she published her first novel in 2000, S.C. author Dorothea Benton Frank has borrowed some of South Carolina's most popular beaches -- Sullivan's Island, Isle of Palms, Pawleys Island -- for the settings and titles of her books.

On Monday, June 17, she'll discuss her writing and answer questions at a fundraiser for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library. The $40 ticket price includes a copy of her new novel, "The Last Original Wife."

Her talk begins at 7 p.m. in ImaginOn's Wells Fargo Playhouse. For information or to buy tickets, check here or call 704-973-2828.
