BOOK SIGNING IN SUMTER
Doug and I, along with my sister Nila and her husband, enjoyed the afternoon in Sumter, SC, at the Elephant Ear Gallery yesterday. Beforehand, we distributed promotional flyers about the book signing at the Sumter County Museum’s craft show, which was held in the museum’s park-like back yard under old, impressive trees. Nearby is the museum’s Carolina Country Homestead with examples of colonial buildings such as a blacksmith’s shop, outhouse, loom house, bread oven, and kitchen where they stage Living History Days.
We went for lunch at the Sidebar restaurant, a good choice for food, service, and atmosphere.
The weather was perfect for outside activities—sunshine and 72°—which made attracting people inside a challenge, not just for myself but for the other two writers as well. I enjoyed spending time with writers Minnie Dix and Ruby DeLoach as well as our hosts Shelly Brown and Pam.
