Reading in the Garden, Moulton, Alabama

October 12, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


There are some communities I cannot wait to get back to, and some people I cherish that I just never have enough time with. I met Loretta Gillespie at the Alabama Book Fair many moons ago. Loretta is one of those women we rightly call movers and shakers. When Loretta sets her mind to something, there ain’t nothing going to get in her way.

She could run the country with a blindfold on and one arm tied behind her back.

And funny.

I always know that when I’m with Loretta, a good time is going to be had by all.

For several years now, Loretta has hosted Reading in the Garden at her very own home garden, which is really an event center garden. Everything about it is beautiful.

Loretta cooks up a mess of everything. Invites out all of Alabama and half of Mississippi. People come in droves to her event. I have never gone there and not completely sold out of books.

The people in Moulton and Cullman, they love a good yarn.

I am looking forward to returning and hugging Loretta’s neck. Poor thing has had a go of it this year. Her daughter has been hospitalized for weeks now and Loretta is sleeping in a bedside recliner. I’m praying she gets to go home soon with her precious girl.

If you are in the area, you don’t want to miss this event. Jim Minick will be one of the featured writers.

And don’t forget to bring a friend. You can sign up on the Facebook page Reading in the Garden, Moulton to get all the latest updates.
