Book Signing News:
I arrived home to Monroe around 8:30 p.m. A long hardday yesterday, from 3:00 a.m. till 8:30 p.m. Yet, in spite of the long hours spent doing programs and driving, I do truly love what I’m doing with these programs and signings. The Quitman high school and junior high students and teachers were wonderful! Ann Broadway, the librarian, has an excellent library and is doing a wonderful job. Once again I had a grand time. My thanks to the staff there!
Tonight, I’ll be doing Children’s Story Time and signing books at Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Perkins Rowe 7707 Bluebonnet Blvd #100 Baton Rouge LA 70810 225-766-1337 Then Saturday, at Waldenbooks, 9663 Cortana Pl Baton Rouge, LA 70815 (225) 924-7665. (The Mall at Cortana Place). I’ll return to Monroe Saturday night. I’ll post Saturday’s blog then. I’ll also try to have a picture of each signing posted.
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY:
According to my Civil War calendar, on this day in 1896, the Confederate White House in Richmond, Virginia, opened to the public. This of course is the house that Jim Limber lived in. I show a photo of the house when I present my Jim Limber Story program to schools. The house was saved by a group of Richmond women who formed the Confederate Memorial Literary Society. I haven’t seen the house in many years, but I intend to do book signings in Richmond this summer, so I’ll get another chance to see it.
Baffling Thought of the Day: This is from T-Bubba’s CD I listened to yesterday.
