Library Spotlight: Florence County Library

My childhood library was a mansion. A castle. A book-lined building of burgundy brick. A portal to imagination. Adventure. Possibility. People I met through reading.

Reader Notes: Maggie Walker

I love reader notes. Maggie devoured an advance copy of Not Without My Father. I'm grateful to her for reading and for taking time to pen this bit of inbox sunshine.

Available NOW from Word Hermit Press A photographic walk of the 444-mile Natchez Trace with MOI as photographer, walker and guide. From March 1 to April 3, 2014, I walked the Natchez Trace, all 444-miles. How does a person fill the time when walking alongside a highway fifteen miles a day for thirty-four days? To stave off boredom and deflect pain, I took pictures. Of highway and sky. Of garbage. Of spring flowers. Of migrating birds. Of trees and fields and signs.
