On my way to Mississippi

Miss map

I’m on my way to Mississippi (which I expect to be the temperature of this image),  celebrating early the September 1 publication of my new book at the Mississippi Book Festival . This is a sequel to The Last ResortTHAT WOMAN FROM MISSISSIPPI–the story of what happened to that woman in 1966, after she drove off down the road with a civil rights lawyer.

Doug Fortier, my social media guru, made a button for my husband Les to wear. If I had fifty friends left in Mississippi, I’d make them wear one, too.

If you’re nearby, we will be telling “Her Story” in State Capitol Room A, Saturday, August 19, 12-1pm.

  1. I am not sure what to say. This world is crazy and scary. But you have the style, the grace, the understanding and the words to make a change. I hope they give you a chance to tell your story. Safe and wonderful travel wishes my friend.

      • Such a long time, Norma, and I’ve wondered about you two from time to time. Tom’s death pretty much ended my visits to Mendocino for the time being, but one of these days … meanwhile will place an order for my copy. Of course you’re aware that Don passed away some time ago, but his book was published. Incidentally, mine is now in second draft form and will hit the shelves on February 6th. It’s being published by Hay House out of NY. Maybe one of these days I’ll join the writers guild!
