The Aiken Christian Women’s Connection is hosting an award-winning author at its next meeting later this month.

The organization is holding its Annual Guest Night on Feb. 26, and author Keith Clemons will be speaking to attendees about his journey toward finding peace through Christianity.

Clemons is a graduate of California State University, Fullerton, earning a bachelor’s degree in English literature. He has written five novels and is working on his sixth.

Each of his first three novels, “If I Should Die,” “Above the Stars” and “These Little Ones,” were awarded Best Contemporary Fiction at the World Guild’s Canadian Christian Writing Awards competition – “Angel in the Alley” received honorable mention in 2008.

“Mohamed’s Moon” is his most recently published book which was released in 2009.

Clemons lived in Canada for 27 years before moving to Aiken three years ago with his wife Kathryn. Clemons said their family started moving to Aiken, and he decided to follow them down here.

“We love it,” Clemons said. “It’s a great place.”

Soloist Mark Morin will offer musical entertainment.

The event will be held Feb. 26 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Woodside Plantation Country Club, and its $17 for the dinner buffet.

Attendees are encouraged to bring spouses, friends and neighbors to the Annual Guest Night.

Reservations must be made before Feb. 20 by calling Pam Harmon at 270-0704 or emailing
