Ferrum College Booksigning

Last week, I was invited to Ferrum College to speak to the World Folktales class about Ferradiddledumday and to do a booksigning for both Ferradiddledumday and Stuck at the college bookstore.

My table was already set up when I got there.
Ferrum Mountain is in the background.

From 1999 until 2006, I was an adjunct instructor of English at the college, a job I enjoyed very much, so it was good to see so many of my former colleagues again. I was amazed how much the campus had changed since I worked there. The bookstore itself had changed. Now it had both a cafe (that served Starbucks, had a TV a comfortable chairs, and provided wi-fi access) and an outside patio area. It was a great place to lounge—or to have a booksigning.

Tasty snacks were provided by the library, which sponsored the signing.

I saw a lot of folks I used to work with.

I'm signing a book for Susan.

Even the administration stopped by!

Thanks to all who made this signing a success—English professor  Tina Hanlon,  librarian George Taylor-Loveland, bookstore manager Patty Sigmon, and many others.

You made me feel very welcomed. And thanks for buying so many books!
