Book signing set for Saturday at museum
Gloria Gipson Suggs will have a book-signing for her newest book, “Piece-A-Way Crossroads,” at the Ida B. Wells Museum on Saturday, Aug. 31, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Please RSVP at 662-252-3232 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Suggs is a native and resident of Marshall County.
Her new book is a work of fiction based on the life of a couple who lived in Marshall County, from the 1930s through the 1960s.
It is written from the perspective of Jeannie, one of their daughters, who invites the reader to come “piece-away” with her as she tells their story.
