Gin Phillips' books


Writer Gin Phillips was at the Florence Lauderdale Public Library last night.  I loved her first book, The Well and the Mine, which was set in Carbon Hill, Alabama, just down the road from me.  Sorry for the quality of the photos; they are borrowed  from Amazon.


Gin's new book, Come in and Cover me, is a total departure from the depression-era coal-mining/farming book that her first one was.  I haven't finished it yet, but so far, it is just as good.


I love meeting writers and listening to them....it just makes their books seem so personal.  Our library is the best; there is always something going on there!  We plan to be there on Sunday afternoon for a program about the Civil War.  Local peeps, I hope to see you there!
