Local author book signing

Caroline Taylor, local Pittsboro author, will be at Paperbacks Plus! in downtown Siler City  with her P. J. Smythe books on September 28th. from 11-1. 

Her first book, "What Are Friends For" and the second "Jewelry From A Grave" are both fast paced, light hearted spoofs of the classic hard boiled whodonits. They explore the lengths to which Annapolis, MD skip tracer P.J. Smythe must go to dodge a murder charge, track down a missing antique jewelry lover, look into the seamy side of illegal trade in wildlife - all while fending off the attentions of her former husband and a really desperate ex-boyfriend

Literary Happenings

Pittsboro Writers’ Morning Out will meet Saturday, September 14, 1:00 PM at Pittsboro Roadhouse.  We will be in the back room. Come early if you are having lunch there.

All writers, any genre are invited.

Writing Assignment:  Last month members read their thought on Why They Write.  These proved to be most interesting and thoughtful. So we will continue.  The subject this month is “How I Write”, the where and when. Again please keep it short (1 page or less) so we can hear from everyone.
