Rankin Co. Celebates Ntl Reading Month With Three Special Events

Conversations Book Club President Cyrus Webb is pleased to announce that the reading group will be hosting three special literary events to celebrate National Reading Month in March 2012.
The first is a booksigning for author E. V. Adams on Saturday, March 17th at the Pearl Public Library (2416 Old Brandon Road * Pearl, MS) beginning at 1p.m. Adams' book DARLING NIKKI was just released in Feb. 2012 by Strebor Books and it will be her first event in Rankin County to introduce it.

Then on Wednesday, March 21, 2012 Conversations Book Club will welcome bestselling author Lucy Ferriss to Rankin County to discuss her new book THE LOST DAUGHTER. This will also take place at the Pearl Public Library from 12-1:30p.m. Copies of the book are available at bookstores now. Make sure you bring your copy by for the author to personalize.

Finally on Saturday, March 24, 2012 Conversations Book Club wil host a first of its kind book fair at the Pearl Public Library (2416 Old Brandon Road * Pearl, MS) beginning at 1p.m.

This event will feature eight of Mississippi's literary rising stars, each of whom will be discussing their journeys as writers, signing their books and meeting the public. "This is an opportunity for the state of Mississippi to not only support our own but meet new authors as well," says Webb, 36. He has hosted over 100 booksignings in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana and Tennessee, each with the purpose of getting authors noticed and letting the readers know about books they may not have heard of. Webb adds: "Conversations Book Club is excited to bring this group of authors together for the first time, and I know those who attend the book fair will be glad they met them as well."

The featured authors for the book fair are Darlene Collier (Married To Sin), Jerome Cooper (A Dual Blessing: Body and Success), Dr. Vershern Edwards (I Don't Want Okra), Joseph Henderson ( I Don't Want To Die All Alone), Glenda L. Hunter (An Unspeakable Secret, Mommy Twinkle Eyes and Worthwhile? Who Me? Yes, You!), Dr. Greg Little (Rise Above), Jennifer Luckett (Caught In The Middle) and Jason Lee Usry (Markside).

Admission to three of these special events is free, however, each author will have copies of their books available for purchasing. For more information contact Cyrus Webb at or 601.896.5616. You can also visit
