      Hi Y'All-

      For those who have not read the Publishers Weekly blue-boxed review of The Road South, calling it one of the most important books of the year, let us tell you about it. This memoir, more than any we have ever read, proves that the human spirit can conquer brutality, deprivation, racism and much more.

      Shelley Stewart's amazing success story reads like fiction and will be on all "must read" lists. Warner Books thinks so, as many of their top executives are headed to Alabama on the corporate jet to kick-off Shelley's nationwide tour.

      The mayor of Homewood has proclaimed Friday, July 12, as "Shelley Stewart Day". The Homewood Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a ceremony at the Booksmith at 4:00 PM where Mayor Barry McCulley will present Shelley with the key to the city. Even though he must be in Washington, D.C. the next day, Shelley has agreed to sign everyone's books - if it takes all night. Of course, if you can't make the party, we'll be happy to reserve signed copies.

      See ya Friday,
