Great Library Event in Hopkinsville, Ky.

The Kentucky rollout of Mama Tried was incredible, thanks to longtime friends Rick and Marsha Bentley and Roylee Erwin. Another treasured friend from the ’70s, Rich Liebe, helped get the word out and, as a result, my book signing at the Hopkinsville-Christian County (Ky.) Library April 25 was simply amazing.
