Okay, the headline of this blog post says, “Signing and Singing,” but hopefully I won’t be singing when I join five other authors plus numerous young singers in Watkinsville at the OCAF Center December 16 from 6 – 8 PM.
The other authors, in addition to yours truly, include Terry Kay, author of many popular books including To Dance With the White Dog; Julie Cannon, of True Love and Homegrown Tomatoes fame; Philip Lee Williams, who has two new books, The Campfire Boys and Elegies for the Water; Gail Karwoski, whose latest book is River Beds: Sleeping in the World’s Rivers; and Grady Thrasher who is the author of the Tim and Sally series.
The singing part of this holiday event will be handled by two groups: Decatens Acapella Choir of Oconee County Middle School and A Chorale from the Westminster Christian Academy’s Lower School. In addition to signing our latest books, the six authors will perform an author’s ensemble reading of The Night Before Christmas. This is one of my all time favorite poems, so I’m looking forward to taking part in this performance (as long as we don’t have to sing it).
The OCAF Artist Shoppe will be open as well and stocked with plenty of handmade, original art perfect for Christmas gifts. Other things you should know: Admission is free and more information is available on the website: www.ocaf.com or by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 706-769-4565.
