Uwharrie Book signing 05/22/2010

Ms. Heidi Ippolito, author of "Bobo's New Home", joined me on the trek to North Carolina for this multi-author book signing. It was a pleasant day, although my navigator (Ms. Heidi) only got me lost once. Really it wasn't her fault as I should have prepared directions from any scenario. I was trying to show her how to get to Central Piedmont Community College where we will be for the Love 2 Learn Homeschool Conference and because the directions I had printed out actually took me a different way than I went last year, I got myself turned around. So I don't blame her really. We had a very enjoyable day.

She took some wonderful pictures. The bookstore is actually smaller than I thought and I was surprised that they actually have a book club meeting there and there are other groups they have there too. Of course, I guess if they are having discussion groups and workshops and all, they figure out a way to accommodate folks.

My table mate, Jennifer Hudson Taylor, author of historical romance novels that have to do with her heritage in a way.

April Thomas, self-published author of a book called "Broken" and one other, with a third one on the way. She bought a copy of each of my books.

Ms. Heidi, Shawn (owner of Uwharrie Books), daughter and son, and Jeni (Joyce and Jim Levene's daughter).

It was a very enjoyable day and I thank April and Jim and Joyce Levene for their purchases. I also thank Joyce for posting on a forum about this opportunity. I look forward to more visits with the store and more events. Mrs. E :)
