      26th Tables of Content Dinner - A Friends of the Library Fundraiser

      The Friends of the Library are holding their 26th Tables of Content Dinner on March 12, 2013. It includes a reception, book signings, and a silent auction for donated gifts at 6:00 pm, followed by dinner at 7:00 pm. This is one of the social highlights of the Friends' year and raises a substantial sum of money for the library. 

      Our featured speaker will be Jeffrey Small, Jr. author of the mystical thriller, The Breath of God, a popular blogger on Huffington Post, and an acclaimed speaker on religious and spirituality topics.  

      Jeffrey graduated summa cum laude from Yale University, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. While at Yale, he served as Publisher and Senior Editor of the Yale Herald. He then graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School where he was elected to the Board of Student Advisors and taught speech, legal writing, and research.

      When not pursing his passion for theological discourse, Jeffrey is the CEO and founder of MDH Partners, an Atlanta-based commercial real estate investment and development company. Working with The Blackstone Group and Wells Fargo, MDH Partners has participated in over $2 billion of acquisitions and developments. Prior to founding his new company in 2005, Jeffrey was the CEO of M.D. Hodges, one of Atlanta’s largest real estate development companies. He began his professional career practicing corporate law at the Atlanta law firm King & Spalding. 

      Jeffrey’s eclectic hobbies include being a former US Champion amateur ballroom dancer with his wife, Alison. He also held the rank of Black Sash in Kung Fu, specializing in the the Internal Arts. 

      Jeffrey currently serves as a member of the Boards of Trustees at both The Westminster Schools and Trinity Schools in Atlanta, where he focuses on education in the 21st century, and he serves Board of Trustees at General Theological Seminary in New York, the first seminary of the Episcopal Church.  He is the former Vice-Chairman of the Board of IMAGE Film and Video, the organizer of the Atlanta Film Festival. He also serves as a member of the Board of Directors of First Century Energy, a green energy company targeted on the commercial and industrial real estate market.

      His proudest accomplishments are his marriage and friendship with his wife and their smart, beautiful, and sweet daughter.
