Michael Joslin, photographer and author, will speak on Wednesday, July 9, at noon, at the Johnson City Public Library in the Jones Meeting Center. Mr. Joslin will talk about mountain folks he has met, the mountain places he has visited, and the efforts to publish his stories. His photography has become his most time-consuming hobby along with draft horses and gardens.
