      Hi Y'All-

      Howell Raines was the most powerful man in the world of publishing
      before he stepped down as Editor-in-Chief of the New York Times. His
      fascinating new book, The One That Got Away gives insight to that
      situation and his entire life as it relates to fly fishing....and he has
      a brilliant ability to equate living to fishing.

      You have two opportunities this week to meet Howell Raines and have
      copies signed for your personal library as well as gifts for Graduation,
      Father's Day and other occasions. Thursday evening, the Literacy Council
      has chosen Mr. Raines to kick off their Signature Series at the
      magnificent home of Marion and Brad Kidd on Cherokee Road. Come enjoy
      drinks, hors d'oeuvres and mingle with the beautiful literati. Call
      205.326.1925 for reservations and information.

      are unable to see Mr. Raines in person, we'll be happy to handle signed

      Our regular reminder: you only have until the end of the month to
      receive two tickets for the drawing for the signed copy of To Kill a
      Mockingbird by Harper Lee when you order signed first editions of
      Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee by Charles J. Shields. You may
      order on line at http://www.alabamabooksmith.com; by reply to this
      e-mail or at 205.870.4242. A complete explanation is on the new web site
      of Alabama's favorite book columnist, Susan Swagler: www.swagler.net.
      Look for the article with the headline "Two birds with one stone".

      Last reminder: The Signed First Editions Club selection for May is A
