Books: Two signings June 27 at Literary Bookpost
Literary Bookpost will hold a special late Saturday afternoon reception and book signing for Pamela Jouan Goldman from 4-5:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 27.
She was born in London, spent much of her professional career in the music industry in Los Angeles, and lives in New York, where she writes for a series of culinary-centric magazines. She is the daughter-in-law of Salisbury residents Norma and Charles Goldman.
While at the Bookpost, she will sign copies of her novel, “White Feathers: If I Had One More Day with You.” In “White Feathers,” Ruby DuPont loses her husband Charles to cancer after 40 years of marriage. After his death, Ruby is given one amazing day with Charles to reconnect and reflect on their lives together, as well as the inexplicable signs that pointed to his impending death.
Inspirational, even miraculous, we come to learn that faith is the binary code in this tale of lost love. The result is clarity on dealing with loss in a positive, self-affirming way.
“White Feathers” is dedicated to Pamela’s mother in her father’s memory. She donates all proceeds from the sale of the novel to the American Cancer Society.
South Carolinian at Saturday Salon
South Carolina author Linda York Fisher will sign copies of her recent novel, “Enraged,” during Saturday Salon at Literary Bookpost on Saturday, June 27, 1:30-3:30 p.m.
Fisher is from Fort Mill, S.C., and is a public speaker and developer of industrial workshop training materials. Although “Enraged” is her first novel, she has written several screenplays and a comic book.
Set in Arizona beginning in 1875, the central character of “Enraged” is 20-year-old John Trent, who is framed for a stage coach robbery and spends five years in the state penitentiary. He barely survives as a human being and plots revenge.Once released into the larger world of humanity, he finds his desire for revenge somewhat tempered by his realization that, to accomplish complete revenge, he will lose his own civil self. Trent’s journey, though it leads to murder and madness, also ultimately leads to kindness, generosity, love, reconciliation and finally, freedom.
Literary Bookpost is at 119 S. Main St. in downtown Salisbury. For additional information about this event or future events at Literary Bookpost, call 704-630-9788 or visit www.literarybookpost.com.
Family history published
Ronald L. Woodruff has researched his family history ad printed the book, “The Ancestry of Jacob Woodruff and Eliza Jane Martin of Davie County.” The book puts into chronological order six generations of the family.
The book started, Woodruff writes, with two brothers going to the register of deeds office to find out about the death of a family member. After 18 months of research, inquiries in 13 states, contacting more than 1,400 family members directly and indirectly, and finding more than 1,000 birth, marriage and death certificates, the book evolved.
It is a hardback book with more than 380 pages of information printed by Jostens of Winston-Salem.
Woodruff says Betty Dan Spencer’s book “Remembering Dixonville and East End, Salisbury, North Carolina,” inspired him and that she helped him with the project.
