Who Went to School with Bond Nickles? I did!

On Thursday, November 18, 2010
at our Christmas Open House
Burry Bookstore is hosting an Author Meet and Greet
from 6:00 until 9:00 pm
Hartsville Native and Writer Bond Nickles will be signing copies of his new children's book A Brown Thrasher.
This event is FREE and open to the public.

In The Brown Thrasher a baby bird arrived at the Nickles home late one night - in the mouth of Sally the cat! But surviving that brush with danger was just the beginning for this little brown thrasher. It would need some help from Mama, Sarah, Davis and Will - and even Daddy. Follow Baby as it grows up in its new "nest," and see if it can learn to live on its own.
Bond is a public information coordinator for the Office of Media Relations at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, where he has lived since 1992. He also keeps the official statistics for Gamecock football games as well as both the men's and women's basketball games. And he continues to do freelance sports writing for local and regional publications and websites. Recently, he profiled former New York Yankee great and USC and Coastal Carolina baseball coach Bobby Richardson in Sandlapper magazine.
Before moving to Columbia, Bond was a fulltime sports writer for daily newspapers in Rome, Georgia, and Savannah, Georgia, and covered everything from skeet shooting and rugby to Atlanta Falcons football and the Ryder Cup. A 1978 graduate of Thomas Hart Academy, Bond is married to Lynn, and they have three children, Sarah (14), Davis (13) and Will (9).

We can't wait until our Author Luncheon today with Patti Callahan Henry!  If you haven't read her novels you're missing a very talented author.  Most of us at Burry's have read almost all of her books and highly recommend them.  

We have extra copies of all of her books, including her latest holiday novella, The Perfect Love Song.  She'll be autographing the extras before she leaves, so make sure you stop by and get an autographed copy if you weren't able to come to the luncheon.

Jan Karon - New Father Tim Novel

In the Company of Others was released yesterday and we are eager to read it!  Fans of Jan Karon have been waiting 3 years for this one!

A stirring page-turner from the bestselling author of the Mitford Series.
Jan Karon's new series, launched with her "New York Times" bestselling "Home to Holly Springs," thrilled legions of Mitford devotees, and also attracted a whole new set of readers. "Lovely," said "USA Today." "Rejoice!" said "The Washington Post."

In this second novel, Father Tim and Cynthia arrive in the west of Ireland, intent on researching his Kavanagh ancestry from the comfort of a charming fishing lodge. The charm, however, is broken entirely when Cynthia startles a burglar and sprains her already-injured ankle. Then a cherished and valuable painting is stolen from the lodge owners, and Cynthia's pain pales in comparison to the wound at the center of this bitterly estranged Irish family.

"In the Company of Others" is a moving testament to the desperate struggle to hide the truth at any cost and the powerful need to confess. Of all her winning novels, Jan Karon says this "dark-haired child" is her favorite-a sentiment readers everywhere are certain to share.
