Take a look at these three photographs? Can you identify the location or locations? How about the person in the third picture? I'll send the first Carolina Conversations blogger with the correct answers a copy of my new CD.
And speaking of the above, I have had numerous calls and letters from people wanting signed copies of my new book and companion CD as gifts. Thank you very much for your interest in the Blue Ridge Reunion project. I've been overwhelmed with the positive reaction - so much so that we are now into our second printing of the book! That's very exciting. Every day I carve out some time to respond to these personal requests. I am more than happy to handle personal orders but with Christmas coming on I want to make sure that I can fill every request before the big day.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like me to sign and mail you copies of the book and CD. The 124 page hardback book, featuring my father's mountain watercolors and my essays and photographs, retails for $25 while the 14 song CD, which hit number one on the world music charts, sells for $15. I accept checks but not credit cards. You can order directly from me or visit one of the many retail outlets carrying the items. These include Quail Ridge Books & Music, Barnes & Noble, Borders Books & Music, Wild Birds Unlimited, and the gift stores at the NC History Museum and the NC Museum of Natural Sciences.
If you'd like to read more about the book and CD you can check out Peder Zane’s article “Portrait of a Reunion” on the News & Observer web site.
