October has been a busy month with fall festivals, reunions, and reading to children at local schools. The month started with a book signing for my newest book, Tired of School, at Literary Bookpost in Salisbury and ended with rekindling old friendships at the North Rowan High School reunion.
Everyday seems to bring a new surprise. The high school reunion was especially sweet because everyone was ready to have a good time. I especially liked the fact that I won a door prize. I was the lucky winner of a Betty Sedberry print. Betty Sedberry is a local artist known for her ability to capture many the local landmarks through her art. My print was that of a local hangout from high school days called Zestos. Looking at the details of the print, it was almost like forty years had disappeared and I was a teenager again ordering a large fry and coke.
Thanks to everyone who bought a book or two at the reunion. Many told me of plans to share the books, Tired of My Bath and Tired of School, with their grandchildren. I hope everyone has a lot of quiet times to share and enjoy reading these books. If you get a chance to post any comments from your grandchildren that would be awesome.
