November book events attended

This week has been a busy one for me and Mama as we traveled to book events in Louisiana and Arkansas. Wednesday morning we drove to Minden, LA, and met with the library staff there and talked about our book and signed them afterwards.

That afternoon we drove to Jonesboro, LA, where we had a room full of ladies who listened to us read from the book and then asked questions of us about mama's growing-up years. It was a wonderful time had by all...refreshments included. Thank you to the ladies at both libraries who hosted those events.

Friday, Nov. 6th, we drove to Magnolia, AR, to the Columbia County Library and spoke to a room full of students from the area schools. There were 4th graders, 5th graders and 6th graders in attendance as well as a number of adults. The room was full and the questions were wonderful. The students listened to us read from the book, then questioned us about the way mama and her family lived during the 20s, 30s and 40s. We sure had a nice time there. Thank you Laura, Dana and Dennis. You were perfect host and hostesses.
