1. Is "New History" An Oxymoron?
2. Keep Those Cards and Letters Coming
Greenhaw Breaks New Ground
We hope you saw the story in today's Montgomery Advertiser about Wayne
Greenhaw's new book, "Montgomery: The River City." But whether you did or
you didn't, you should know that this one is a real significant contribution
to the old city's rich, colorful, highly conflicted history. Which is to
say, there's stuff in here we've never heard before, because Wayne, who
loves this city as much as anybody you know, never stops digging around to
find out more and more about it.
Last year our biggest bestseller was "Sense of Place," the book about
Montgomery's architectural heritage, and this new book by Wayne Greenhaw
belongs right there on the shelf beside that one. And wouldn't it be a nice
Christmas present, especially if you could get it signed by Wayne? Which of
course you can, TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 20, FROM 4-6 PM, right here at
Come meet Wayne, hear some old Montgomery stories told as only he can tell
them, and get every Montgomerian on your Christmas list a present they'll
treasure long into the future. If you can't come, just let us know, and
we'll get as many copies as you want signed any way you want, giftwrapped,
and even shipped if you want us to. ($39.95 hardcover)
We Need More
Just a reminder to keep sending us your reports on the best books you read
in 2002. It can be as many books as you like, and we wouldn't even mind if
you let us know of any books which were especially disappointing reads, too.
We've just been commissioned by the newspaper to do a long article
consisting of your responses, so, well, we really need your responses.
