Sandra Carrington-Smith, not only a wonderful author, but a good friend of mine, came to the Wall 2 Wall Studio on July 10, 2010 to do a benefit book signing. Our target? Coastal Louisiana.
We had a really good turn-out that day, and I couldn’t help but blog about it.
I don’t know how the rest of you feel, but the Gulf Coast disaster tugs at my heart daily. I see pelicans wrapped up in oil, I read of dolphins dying, and read of fishermen unable to do their daily-thing. I don’t know about the rest of you, but this just breaks my heart.
My author-friend, Sandra, has published two books; one fiction, one non-fiction and has dedicated herself to donating a portion of her book sales to the Louisiana Gulf Response (www.lagulfresponse.org), via the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (www.crcl.org), a local grassroots "boots on the ground" organization dedicated to preserving the Louisiana and Gulf Coast region.
We had a wonderful turnout, and I want to thank my good friend, Elaine Estes, for taking some outstanding pictures of all of us!
