      Super September Signings

      Make plans to spend the next two weeks at The Booksmith meeting and
      greeting truly incredible, big-time authors. As usual, if you cannot
      make any of these in person, we'll be happy to have books signed for

      Robert Halli
      An Alabama Songbook
      Harper Lee said, "An Alabama Songbook is a wonder - a work of fine
      scholarship that entertains as it instructs." Every Alabama library must
      include a copy of this wonderful collection of ballads, folksongs and
      spirituals. Come meet Dr. Halli - maybe he'll sing a ditty for you.

      all time, with a foreward by Jay Barker. During the two hours of the
      signing only, we're offering (while they last), a BAMA BOOK BARGAIN!
      Signed copies of Legends of Alabama Football, Rammer Jammer Yellow
      Hammer by Warren St. John, and the leather bound, signed limited
      edition of The Crimson Tide by Winston Groom - all three for $99. -

      the Dream. He will also have copies of his newest CD for sale.
      Meet the most important civil rights leader of our time, the Reverend
      Fred Shuttlesworth and truly one of America's finest writers, Sena Jeter
      Naslund for her national debut signing of the paperback edition of Four
      Spirits . We'll also have lots of important Birmingham books previously

      George Singleton
      Why Dogs Chase Cars
      We've been chasing the South's funniest author for years and finally
      caught him. He is one sensational writer who is much, much, much more
      fun in person. Please do yourself a favor (and us, too - we need a big
      turnout to encourage this most sought-after author to come back to
      Birmingham), and come meet George Singleton.
