Bremond was a Success!

On February 5, I narrated a script for a silent play. The play was inspired by a scene from my book, Once Jilted and was only part of the goings on at the Bremond Library Fundraiser. It was a blast.

Besides the silent play, the Cowboy Church provided cowboy stew cooked outside along with biscuits and cobbler baked in a dutch oven. Kids were treated to a few old time type games while parents bid on silent auction items.

I invited Linda LaRoque to join me. After the play, they allowed us to talk about our books, t
hen afterwards we were allowed to sell and autograph our books. Way too much fun!
To the left are some of the actors in action. And to the right, I'm watching as Linda gives her speech.

The reason I was asked to participate in this event was because Bremond was once a stop for the orphan train and there are still several descendants of the orphan train riders living in Bremond. I really enjoyed giving the program and letting everyone know a little more about the orphan train riders.

Thanks Bethany. I won't make March because I'm scheduled to talk to junior high and high school students in Rockdale. Should be fun.

It was an awesome experience, Ciara. I loved the play as it brought alive the real situation of the orphans. Once Jilted is my favorite of the Orphan Train series though all are well worth the read. Thanks for including me.
