Past Book Signings 2016

  • halexander1-fumc-2016Sept. 16, Adventures in Learning, First United Methodist Church, Jackson, Tenn. What a great audience! Talking about the Holy Cheat and Rev. Billy Graham is always fun. If you haven’t heard the stories, I’ll be glad to tell them at your next event! We had a wonderful luncheon, and so many people bought books for themselves and for Christmas gifts. Ihalexander-fumc2 look forward to future meetings for adult learning groups in the First Methodist Conference districts. Thank you to Pam Jaco for inviting me to speak!

  • Sept. 17, Kennerly-Cupples Lectureship, Parkers Crossroads. Boy, it was pouring cats and dogs! We sloshed through the rain, but inside, we had a great group of folks interested in the history I tell in my books. The Confederate Long Rifle is a fascinating story about a man who sought revenge for his young sons being beheaded by a Union patrol.
  • Thursday, April 7, 4 to 6 p.m., West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center, 121 Sunny Hill Cove, Brownsville, Tennessee. We had a great crowd of about 40 people who attended. I enjoyed talking about Haywood County history with friends. Thank you to Sonia Outlaw-Clark who always creates a well-planned and publicized event.
  • Boy Scouts meeting. It’s great fun talking to young men about our history. I hope they take an interest and perhaps become as interested as I have been all my life!
