Co-author of ‘Do’s and Don’ts of Fundraising’ to Speak and Sign Books at Fayette Library Saturday

The Fayette County Public Library invites the public to a book signing by local business and communications expert Adrienne Johnson on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 1 p.m.

Johnson will talk about “Do’s and Don’ts of Fundraising,” a book she co-authored with her husband Joseph Johnson and Suzanne Mayo-Theus. Copies of the book will be available for sale at the event, with proceeds benefiting the Friends of the Fayette County Public Library. The program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served, compliments of the Friends of the Fayette County Public Library.

It takes more than luck to raise money. “Do’s and Don’ts of Fundraising” is a practical “how-to” manual for anyone who has ever had a great idea and a burning desire to make an impact on the community but lacked the funds to make their project a reality. The authors have worked as highly successful fundraisers for large international organizations and offer real-life experience and knowledge of financial procurement.

Adrienne Johnson is an internationally respected business strategist and motivational speaker with expertise and experience in marketing, management, communications and business development. As founder and CEO of Infinity Global Connections, a marketing and leadership development company, she has delivered hundreds of lectures, seminars, commencement speeches for colleges, and keynote addresses for major corporations and nonprofit organizations. Prior to launching her own business, Johnson held leadership roles for over 23 years at The Coca-Cola Company, where she developed, presented and implemented influential marketing programs.

The Fayette County Public Library is located behind the Fayette County administrative complex in downtown Fayetteville, at the southwest corner of Highways 85 and 54. For additional information, contact the library at 770-461-8841.
