Busy Weekend

I’m on my way home to Monroe this morning. Yesterday, was packed with activity. I returned to the Barnes & Noble on University in Fort Worth, and had a sell-out signing.  I moved from there to the Sundance Barnes & Noble in Forth Worth and had another good signing. Here I am with Elizabeth, one of the workers at the University Barnes & Noble. She is a sharp lady who earned her MA in Art at Edinburgh University. She told me a few stories of her stay in Scotland.

From the Sundance Barnes and Noble, I attended a dinner at Soda Springs BBQ located at 8620 Clifford St. in White Settlement.  After a fine meal, we went to the Texas Civil War Museum for a private showing of Civil War artifacts from the private collection of Ray Richey. Ray is the curator and founder of this fantastic museum.  The museum rotates its collections 3-4 times a year, drawing from artifacts owned by the United Daughters of the Confederacy and from Ray and Judy Richey’s private collection. Though I was allowed to take several photos, these two are my favorites. The first is a display that gave me an idea for my book coming out next year–The Little Confederate’s ABC Book. The second is of the card that explains the exhibit.  This museum has helped me so much with my school programs and last night  we discussed ways that we will work together even more in the future.
