Book Event Scheduled
Mama and I will have a book signing (that's us in the picture, me on the left) in Mena, Arkansas on Nov. 15th at the Mena Public Library, 410 8th St. from 10:30 to 1:00 pm. Our book is Sharecropping in North Louisisana - A Family's Struggle Through the Great Depression. Older folk enjoy reading this true account of what it was like growing up a sharecropper's daughter and the struggles my mother and her family faced in the 20s, 30s and 40s. She is 82 and still uses the skills she learned on the farm - cooking, sewing, quilting and gardening. Young people tell us they enjoy the book because of the historical events spoken of by mama as she lived through those events of the Great Depression and WWII. Mama gives her Christian testimony in the book and gives God all the glory for all the blessings she and our family have had in the past, have today and will have in the future. This is our first book and it has been received well. Tate Publishing has been most helpful througout the process. Official release is Nov. 25th 2008.
