Page By Page," a show dedicated to promoting literacy, authors, and their works and words. We're taping the interview just prior to our appearance at the Library, so look for an update to this blog post in the days to come with a link to my interview with Adam Southern.
In the meantime, I hope you'll make plans to join us on Thursday, May 15th at the Maury County Public Library in Columbia, Tennessee where we'll sign books and discuss John Sevier's life and legacy through the lens of history and memory. The library is located at 211 W 8th St, Columbia, TN 38401. Phone the library at (931) 375-6501 for more information.
For those who missed my appearance at the Maury County Public Library, Adam Southern was kind enough to share the following video of my interview with him preceding the talk on "Page By Page." Enjoy...
