I made my way to Bernice, La. on March 26th and met mama and Aunt Sue there to join the nice people at the Business Club Luncheon. We had a delicious catered lunch and then we were asked to talk about our book. I read from several chapters and we had a short discussion on how people during the Great Depression had to make do with what they had. We all wondered how folks might make do if we have another depression. It was nice meeting some of the business people there. We had a book signing afterwards and sold a number of books and audio versions. Thanks Ms. Lann for inviting us, and thanks to the Banner Newspaper for the lovely article they published telling the community of our visit. The local drug store has a number of books and audio versions that can be purchased, so go by to get one if you did not make it to the meeting. You have a nice little town there in Bernice and maybe we will have a chance to visit again.
