About the only thing I can imagine that’s more fun than a book signing (OK, more fun while standing up), is a book signing for a worthy cause.
Family Promise of Cobb County, with the help of Atlanta area churches, mosques, and synagogues, helps homeless families with children achieve adequate and consistent income, stable housing and lasting independence. Services include clean, secure, temporary shelter, job-seeking advice, and childcare. Without Family Promise, many of these families would find themselves broken apart by the very systems created to serve them.
On April 13, from seven to nine PM, I’ll have the opportunity to participate in an author event with a portion of the funds from book sales going to support this amazing organization. The signing will take place at the Episcopal Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, located at 1795 Johnson Ferry Road in Marietta, Georgia. Its sponsors, the Brotherhood of St. Andrew, is a Christian men’s group supporting such outreach activities throughout the Atlanta area.
I wish to thank these organizations, along with my fellow writers, Rona Simmons (author of Images from World War II: The Art of Jack Smith and Postcards from Wonderland), Peggy Spear (author of Artful Deception), and Rosalind and Maggie Bunn (creators of Once Upon a Zoo and other children’s tales). Without them none of this would have been possible.
