Book Signing and Workshop in Columbus, Texas

On May 14th I presented a mini-workshop titled "Anyone Can Write a Romance, Right?" to a small group at the Nesbitt Library in Columbus, Texas. Afterwards I signed books. I had a wonderful time. Not only did I get to visit with my good friend from high school, Sally Shepherd Rogers, but I met some wonderful people.

The Nesbitt Library has a beautiful antique doll collection. If you're in the area, stop in and walk through their exhibit.

Columbus is on the Colorado River and is home to the second largest oak tree in Texas. It is located directly across from the post office. Large oak trees are everywhere--in yards and in the middle of the streets. Here are a few pictures we took.

If you look closely you can see the tree in the road.

Two trees in this street.

Columbus has a beautiful old Opera House. When the structure was built, it housed a bank below and the opera house upstairs. It's been restored to it's original character and severs as a Dinner Theater today. Below are offices.

Below is a picture that hangs in one of the local motels. It is by Ken Turner, a local Columbus artist. Look at it closely. Leave a comment and tell me what is unusual about this piece of art.

Leave a comment to be entered into my monthly Ebook drawing.

Happy Reading and Writing!

  1. Sounds like a good time you had, Linda. That seems to be a very ghostly carriage in that picture!
