CUMMING, Ga. — For Terry Kay, author of "To Dance with the White Dog," having all of Forsyth County reading his book is nothing short of an honor.

"It's great to know there is still an interest in reading. It makes me feel really good," he told hundreds of people who gathered to hear him Sept. 10.

In one year, "To Dance with the White Dog" sold two million copies in Japan.

The book was published 22 years ago. The longevity and impact of Kay's book has surpassed his expectations.

Attendees at the Forsyth Reads Together: An Evening with Terry Kay at the Lanier Tech Forsyth Conference Center, 7745 Majors Road in Cumming, were also able to participate in a question-and-answer portion and have their books signed by Kay.

"This is an exciting event for the community," Martha Amerson said.

Forsyth Reads Together is sponsored by the Forsyth County Public Library and Literacy Forsyth.

"We used to have about 50 to 60 people attend the Forsyth Reads Together events, but tonight it's about 150 people," said Stephen Kight, assistant director for public services of the Forsyth County Public Library. "I think this is because Kay is known so well in the community. Everyone always has something nice to say about him."

This is the fifth year for Forsyth Reads Together, but it's their first year to have an author speak.

"Our expectations for tonight have been exceeded," Kight said.

For more information about upcoming Forsyth Reads Together events, contact the Forsyth County Public Library at 770-781-9840 or visit www.forsythpl.org.
