Pleased to announce that I will attend a Meet and Greet local authors' event at the Ndw Port Richey Library here in Florida. The event will feature 20 or more local authors who will display and offer their books for sale at the library's celebration of 100 years of service to the community. Authors will also do a five minute reading from the book and I'll most likely just speak about the When Tobacco Was King story and quote of some of the fine endorsements I have received. The event is on Sat.Feb.22 between 1-4 pm.
Details have been released for Sat.Feb. 29th's WTWK book talk, "southern-style" brunch buffet, and a copy of the book included with an admission ticket. Wayne County Historical Society and the Wayne County Musrum is hosting the event to benefit the museum. Members cost is $25.00 and non members cost will be $30.00. Looking forward to being there and meeting the fine folk from Goldsboro and district, a truly historic tobacco town. Goldsboro had a J.P. Taylor processing factory and is the home of world famous tobacco auctioneer and the voice of Lucky Strike..Speed Riggs. Can't wait to get there.
Thrilled to see this International Review from the United Kingdom from a reader who wrote about my When Tobacco Was King book as follows: “A very well written account of the industry in Canada, but also giving insight to events in USA, UK
and the rest of Europe and Africa, particularly Rhodesia.
A great read.”
