Ms. Martínez will dis¬cuss her book ¡Caramba!: A Tale Told in Turns of the Card. The Library continues to celebrate authors this fall with a program and reception featuring Mike Lassiter, author of a book titled, Our Vanishing Americana: A North Carolina Portrait, and Dr. Melton McLaurin, Professor Emeritus at UNC Wilmington and author of The Marines of Montford Point: America’s First Black Marines.
