My first book signing was an impromptu setup at my former elementary school library in Florence, SC. I had planned to sign books for friends who already had them, but thanks to presiding librarian Susan Jenkins, Barnes & Noble, and Lori Lyons in Boyds Mills customer service, the book signing became a proper event. Suddenly there were refreshments and 40 copies of the book. My former principal, who still heads Royall Elementary School, as well as my third grade teacher, were among the friends who showed up. It was really fun to do it in the library where I had spent so many afternoons as a kid.
Tomorrow’s book signing is at 1 p.m. at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in SouthPark mall here in Charlotte, NC. Hope to see you there.
