First Book Club of the New Year!

My long-time friend Fran Mires invited me to her Book Club in Old Hickory. What a fabulous night! It began with a feast of Southern food to celebrate my book, Notorious in Nashville. All the members had read the book and it was so satisfying to hear their take on it! Thank you, lovely ladies!

Book Event in my Hometown

Many thanks to everyone at The Wayne County Museum for such a delightful book event on Saturday, December 2. It was an opportunity to talk about my new mystery, Notorious in Nashville, as well as my other books, and I was able to visit with many friends and meet some new ones. All of it took place in the building that was once a feed store, owned by my great uncles, now a museum. Later, I watched the Christmas parade that brought back many memories. A day I will not forget!

Book Event at Wayne County Museum, Dec. 2

I am so excited to be back in my hometown for a book event, Dec. 2! In conjunction with the Christmas parade, the Wayne County Museum is hosting the fundrasier, a free event with 10% of the proceeds from book sales going to the museum. I will be at the museum from 1-5, doing a reading at 2:00.

The home of the Wayne County Museum was once the building that housed a feed store, owned by my great uncles, Dodge and Walter Merriman. It will be a privilege to visit, and to take in the Christmas parade in the evening.

I look forward to seeing many friends from Wayne County at this very special event!

Banned Books Week!

The Library/Media Center at Nashville State Community College, where I taught for twenty years, always made a big deal of Banned Books Week–and it IS a big deal. I won’t even touch banning Dr. Seuss for children, but college should be a place where students can grow in their ability to examine, explore, evaluate–basically, think for themselves. Thank you, Faye Jones at NSCC, for sending photos of this year’s display!
