Hometown Book Launch Event

Contributors and Editors gather at hometown library to celebrate release of historic book.

Hometown Book Launch Event

We launched our book on January 15, 2021, in our hometown of Alexandria, LA at the downtown branch of the Rapides Parish Library. It was a cold day, but over 75 family and friends came out to support us as we shared our writing experience and signed lots of books. Twelve of the 24 contributors were in attendance. Classmate Freddie Price hosted us at his offices prior to our program a few blocks away at the library.

The administration of the library was gracious in its support of the book project and provided space and other support for the book signing.
