September 10th, several friends dropped by the main library near our home and the city center to purchase books or have purchased books signed.

A young man I know from the business world, coming to the library to study for a college class happened by and purchased a book. There were many more visits, and there was never a lull.

Many thanks to all who came! And to the Fort Smith Public Library for their “over the top” support of local authors!

 

The book journey continues….
