Benton Story
The Benton Evening News story on the tomorrow's book signing is now online. The story ran with the headline Books at the Buzz to host signing for local author.

Linda Settle wrote the article. Also want to thank Jennifer Clinton for the heads up on the story being posted. Nice to know that has readers too.
Book Signing
I'm doing a book signing from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Buzz at 601 Public Square in Benton tomorrow on Inauguration Day. Come by for a nice hot chococlate and a book.

The Benton Evening News did a nice story on the book yesterday, but I can't link to it because it's not online.

I've also going a "talk" on the Old Slave House and my new book, Slaves, Salt, Sex & Mr. Crenshaw, at Cata's Books in the West Frankfort Outlet Mall from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, January 30.

For those of you in southeastern Illinois who want to learn more about the house and/or the book, I'll be giving a presentation for the Hardin County Historical Society which meets in the Rosiclare Craft Mall in Rosiclare at 6:45 p.m., Monday, February 7.

If you have a group or class that would like me to visit and talk about the Old Slave House or some other aspect of Southern Illinois history, drop me an e-mail.

It's a couple of months away, but I also have a gig lined up at the Saline Creek Pioneer Village and Museum in Harrisburg for 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Saturday, March 12.
