Confessions of an anchorman

Posted October 30, 2008 10:17 a.m. EDT

I’m coming clean this weekend at Barnes & Noble at Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh during a book signing and musical performance. I will be confessing the mischief of my childhood and other aspects of my life growing up in Western North Carolina. The fun begins at 1:00P.M. this Saturday, November 1 as I read from my book Blue Ridge Reunion and play tunes from the CD which shares the same name. I promise we will have a good time.

I am also really excited to help kick off Barnes & Noble’s Holiday Book Drive. This year, Barnes & Noble Crabtree will be collecting books for the Project Enlightenment Foundation.

Project Enlightenment’s “On the Road to Reading” program is an ongoing effort to promote early literacy. With assistance from Barnes & Noble Crabtree, over a thousand new children’s books are collected and distributed to schools, childcare centers, hospitals, and agencies serving families who may not have access to books at home.

I hope to see you Saturday afternoon!

Right now I would like each of you to talk about your all-time favorite children’s book. Doctor Desoto was a big hit at our house when Lauren and William were growing up. I loved The Big Golden Book of Poetry as a child myself and many others. What about you? Please share.

By the way, thefensk wins the chili contest. Congratulations! I appreciate all the fine recipes.
