Today Pultizer Prize-winning author Rick Bragg kicks off his national tour for his new book, The Most They Ever Had in his hometown, Jacksonville, Alabama. Rick will always be a hometown favorite and I think it's because he gives a voice to people who never even knew they had anything worth hearing.
If you are not too far from Jacksonville, Alabama, the book signing is tonight (Oct. 7) at 7 p.m. at the Leone Cole Auditorium, Jacksonville State University. Admission is Free. Copies of The Most They Ever Had will be available for the very first time. MacAdam/Cage published the title and cost per book is $23.
Rick tells all about the book in this interview with Lisa Davis, features editor for The Anniston Star, Anniston, Alabama. The old photos of Jacksonville are also worth a gander too. Just follow the link at the bottom of the story.
