Rick Bragg and . . . (BIG news!)

September 8, 2015


9780848746391I’m so happy to know Page and Palette Bookstore is bringing Pulitzer Prize winning author and local favorite, Rick Bragg to The Venue as he presents his new book, “My Southern Journey.”

Rick-Bragg-2Appearing Wednesday evening at 6pm on September 16th, your $40 ticket will include hors d’oeuvres and a signed, hard-back copy of the book! A cash bar will also be available.


Here I am with Rick when he spoke in Fairhope last year. Reading his books are totally engaging, but hearing him speak is a treat everyone needs to encounter at least once in their life. He’s an amazingly talented speaker, cracking jokes one minute and bringing you to tears the next. Well . . . just like his books.


And in other huge, huge, HUGE news . . .



Jan Karon is coming to Fairhope!

The wildly popular Mitford series has sold millions of copies and is loved by people around the world. Jan Karon will be speaking through Page and Palette (what would we do without them?) at the Christian Life Center of Fairhope United Methodist Church on Tuesday, September 20th. I’ll get more details to you later, but for now you can look HERE for specifics.

And if this news wasn’t exciting enough on it’s own . . . I’ve been asked to moderate the discussion with Jan Karon! Really and truly! I’m so terribly excited and can’t wait to meet this talented author. I’m not totally certain at this point, but I think we’ll probably take questions from the audience, so if you have something you’ve been dying to ask her, send me your questions! Better yet, come on down to Fairhope and ask her yourself. It’s going to be so much fun and I’ve got to decide what in the world to wear. Big decisions!
