Maury County Public Library hosts "John Sevier" book signing

The next stop on our book tour in support of John Sevier: Tennessee's First Hero is at the Maury County Public Library in Columbia, Tennessee.

Our book signing and lecture begins at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 15th, 2014. We're grateful to Maury County librarian and local historian Adam Southern for his invitation to speak at the Maury County Public Library and to take part in the library's television interview program, "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.

UPDATE 5/21/2014:

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...
