HUSH, BOY Meets Its Home Town
Recent book discussion and signing events in Valdosta, Georgia brought HUSH, BOY face to face with its setting. A reception allowed some of the Valdosta High School Class of 1949, to whom the book is dedicated, to have a look at fictional events based upon their own coming of age. Several members of the author's family joined the fun.
The Lowndes County Historical Society was represented and added HUSH, BOY to its library.
A few of the VHS Class of 1949...
...and some of the author's family members.
Next day a book signing was held at the South Georgia Public Library.
Lively book discussion at the modern library...and a long lost cousin (the daughter of one of HUSH, BOY's characters, reappears.
