Alex's book is released this week!

This doesn't have anything to do with tea, but it does have something to do with me, so I thought that those of you who live in the area might like to know that my husband has finally (after many years of requests!) compiled some of his award-winning newspaper columns into a book, and his first book signing will be this Thursday from 3-5 p.m. at Redneck Gourmet in downtown Newnan! (A second signing will be Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Carnegie downtown.)

Here's a brief description of the book: "Southern humorist Alex McRae shares a collection of his award-winning newspaper columns. From possums and puppies to donuts and dating, these columns are guaranteed to make you laugh, cry or get mad. If you like down-home humor with a side of sass, you won't be disappointed."

His illustrator and friend David Boyd Sr. will be on hand, and Mrs. Earlene Scott, beloved Newnan bookseller, is coming out of retirement to supervise the signing. It should be a fun afternoon, and for those of who know and enjoy Alex's work, I'd love to see you there!


  1. Congratulations! Two authors as a couple is powerful! Wish I was close enough to attend.

  2. Congratulations to your hubby. I have "heard" you mention him but didn't know this. Bet you have lots of laughter and smiles at home.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
