The Jim Limber Story: A Program for Schools

Today will be spent mostly at ULM and Delta colleges and by 4:00 I’ll on my way to Mobile! Today, I decided to post a little description of my programs that I do for schools. This is a one-page version of a tri-folded brochure I’m working on.

Rickey E. Pittman


Author of Jim Limber Davis: A Black Orphan in the Confederate White House and Stories of the Confederate South, both by Pelican Publishing.

Offering Interactive School & Library Programs for All Grades and Ages

“The Jim Limber Story”
A study and program of the Civil War. I tell the Jim Limber Story in period dress, have a Civil War show and tell table, and play period music. It’s been a hit everywhere.

“The Scots and Irish in America”
Students experience Scottish and Irish culture through activities and Celtic music.

“Creative Writing Workshops”
Students create their own children’s book. The author can also teach special sessions on writing poetry and short stories for upper level students.

I charge a flat fee only, directly related to the distance from my location in Monroe, Louisiana, and my schedule. You will find me very affordable in comparison with other programs.
