Local library awarded $500 worth of books
In conjunction with the American Library Association Annual Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, Poisoned Pen Press offered librarian attendees the opportunity to win $500 in Poisoned Pen titles donated to a library of his or her choice.
Included in the four nationwide winners is Denise Wilson, who donated to St. Charles Parish Library in Destrehan, Louisiana

“We extend our congratulations to each of these winners and our special thanks to the loyal and dedicated librarians for their service to readers and communities across the country.”
