Northwest Mississippi Community College will hold its first “Author Rodeo Roundup” on Saturday, March 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the R.C. Pugh Library on the Senatobia campus. Director of Learning Resources, Maggie Moran, is rounding up local authors to participate in a book signing at the library on that day.
“This is a chance for Northwest to showcase local authors by giving them an opportunity to visit and chat with the community,“ Moran said.
The event will kick off with a panel discussion of local authors, including Julie Cantrell of Oxford, author of “Into the Free” and her newest novel, “When Mountains Move”; Northwest Instructor Katherine King and her sister Margaret King, authors of “Y’all Twins?” and their newest book, “Which is Which”; Saltillo, MS poet and author Patricia Neely-Dorsey, whose works include “Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia – A Life In Poems” and “My Magnolia Memories and Musings – In Poems”; and Northwest Webmaster Ray Sharpe, who has published five books including “The Traitors” by Hattiesburg native David Walker and “Dipped” by Richard Hill from Collins.
“Each author on the panel will speak for approximately 10 minutes. After the discussion, panel authors and any local author interested in participating will be given a table to set up books for signings,” Moran said.
