I am just so darn excited when I find a book written by someone from the Winslow area. I hope it will me someday.
A while back I started following a blog written by Eddie Casson. Eddie went to WHS and grew up out by the State Forest on a farm. I remembered him from school. He was a few years older than me and hung out with my friend Nyla Riddle sometimes. He tells of his struggles growing up gay in Indiana. The farm stories were such good reading and a piece of our past here at home. People and places we all know. Things so many of us can relate to. He shared these on the blog (at the right on my links) as he was working on his memoir and getting his book published.
His dream finally came true! He has a book. He used some of my good friend Amber Ball’s photos in it. It’s a must read for everyone from the area.
Amber and I met up with Eddie at his book signing at the Petersburg Library on November 7, 2016. I have my signed copy and am about halfway through it already. I love the story about Old Hannah and always love Mammaw stories. Anyone’s Mammaw stories 🙂
Amber Ball, Eddie Casson and me.
Eddies book is available on Amazon. Kindle unlimited it is free, Kindle or paperback available for purchase. I think Marge’s Hallmark is carrying some copies also.
