Winterville’s Front Porch Book Store opened for business one year ago in a tiny building on Marigold Lane that once housed city hall. In just a few short months, this store, which provides funds for the Winterville library, has become a community gathering place, as well as a great source of reading material at reasonable prices. On Tuesday, November 9, 2010, from 6 – 7 p.m., I’ll help Front Porch Book Store celebrate their one-year anniversary with a book signing event.
As some of you know, I’m a native of nearby Athens and a long-time resident of Winterville. The setting for my debut children’s middle grade novel, is the rural North Georgia area and the fictional town of Newtonville in my book is based on Winterville. During this event, I’ll read several short excerpts from my book and will then explain the local connections. The bookstore will have copies of Gone From These Woods available for purchase (cash or check only) and I’ll be glad to autograph your copy. I’ll also be happy to answer your questions about writing and publication during this hour at the bookstore. We’ll have cake and other refreshments, too. Remember all proceeds to go support the Winterville library.
