First met the good people of Little Professor books at the Hoover Library Southern Voices Conference where they were patiently selling books to lines out the door.
Off in the distance in a semi-hey you! -Candid shot - that would be authors River Jordan and Kerry Madden doing what else but talking about books.
Happy Customers abouding at Little Professor and Ben is no exception. We enjoyed a lengthy discussion on the state of the book.
Chrystal talked serious literature, Spanish writers, and books that have a lasting impact on the reader while keeping her cool.
Oh what a beautiful family in everyway. This is author Kerry Madden whose latest book about Harper Lee Up Close is taking the world by storm and daughters Lucy and Nora - both avid readers and heart grabbers.
OH - long time no see! Author Michael Morris makes an appearence and says hello.
We cannot tell a lie- do you know what it's like to have four authors looking at photos and choosing which one is the best? They're all saying - Do I look at in this? (Okay - so Kerry is the coolest of all of us and may not have asked that question!)
Then we went to the local Greek Restaurant and ate like natives!
Our local English Professor picked up the violin and played for the table.
Michael Morris talks serious literature with Nora.
Lucy and her sister plan to take over the world. Okay - they were only planning what to devour for dessert but they were very serious about it.
IT WAS A GREAT EVENING, the morning belonged to the sunshine and sidewalks of Homewood, at opportunity to get organized we just didn't have time for :) - lunches to go, Latte's for the road, and one more story for the road.
See you down around the corner - on a Wing and A Prayer-
Shellie and River
Shellie: I fell in love with this adorable couple at a coffee bar in Montgomery and fell in love with their sweet spirits. They were doing a Beth Moore Bible study together. They graciously agreed to an interview, too. That footage should be on YouTube soon. (Thanks Shelley and Jake. I will never forget y’all!)
Shellie: And then a quick sandwich to go grab at the grill next door while River held a parking spot for us. This would be where I stole a few minutes to watch March Madness. Don’t tell River. I haven’t been at all please about missing March Madness. She hasn’t cared one way or the other. :)
On the wing and a prayer,
River and Shellie
