N.C. authors share stage at holiday salon

Two North Carolina authors will share a special holiday Saturday Salon at Literary Bookpost on Dec. 17, from 1-3 p.m. Both authors have Christmas titles suitable for all ages, and while they are signing those books, they will also have on hand for signing a variety of other books they have authored.
Julia Taylor Ebel is a prolific writer and educator from Jamestown. Ebel conducts poetry and writing workshops in schools and libraries and has taught at Guilford Technical Community College. Her most recent book, “Mama’s Wreaths,” is a collection on narrative poems telling a heartwarming Christmas story based on true events from Ebel’s childhood.
Other books authored by Ebel include “Addie Clawson: Appalachian Mail Carrier,” a book of juvenile nonfiction based on a real female mail carrier in the mountains of North Carolina; “The Picture Man,” a fictional work for juveniles that is based on true events that surrounded the itinerant photographers who traversed the country in the early 20th century; and two books of popular storyteller Orville Hicks’ tales, “Jack Tales and Mountain Yarns,” and “Orville Hicks: Mountain Stories, Mountain Roots.”
Author Karen Cecil Smith will be making her first appearance at Literary Bookpost. Smith is a graduate of Salem College, a freelance writer and lives on a farm outside of High Point.
Smith will be showcasing her Christmas title “An Old Salem Christmas, 1840,” the story of a young Moravian girl celebrating Christmas with her mother. In addition, Smith will have copies of her book “Orlean Puckett: The Life of a Mountain Midwife.” This biography for the adult audience is the true story of Orlean Puckett, 1844-1939, who lived in Carroll County, Va., and delivered thousands of babies over her lifetime while losing all 24 of her own children. Puckett is commemorated on the Blue Ridge Parkway by a National Park Service marker.
Literary Bookpost is located at 110 South Main Street in Downtown Salisbury.
