“There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.” ~ W. Clement Stone
On Friday (3/19/2010), Tina Westbrook will be having her first book release party and book signing. Her book, “Letters from Alcatraz, Forty Years Later” has just been released and she has asked me to shoot the event. Her book is going to be a big success and she made a bold choice by asking me to shoot the events. Not bold because I can’t do it, bold because it isn’t something that I do very often. I feel very honored that she selected me for the task and trusts my photography that much. Tina’s Twitter page, “LettersAlcatraz” and her blog, “Eastcreek Photography” are the best sources for the latest information on her book.
This first book release party will be held at Wildflower Wax Candle Studio & Boutique in Helena, AL. The location is a great choice for a lot of reasons which include very cool shop owners (Dave and Jennifer Rankin), a warm inviting environment, and wonderful merchandise. The book release event is scheduled for Friday night (3/19/2010) from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Make your plans to be there, meet Tina, get your book signed, meet Jennifer and Dave, buy some merchandise, hang out with some great people, and say “hi” to me.
If you don’t already know Tina and you can make it to the party, you should make the effort to come and meet her. She is one of those people that has wonderful, positive energy, she’s energetic, very talented, and totally fun. Make the effort to attend, you won’t be sorry.
The song for this post is titled “Jailbird” from the album “Hold Time” by M. Ward. It’s a good song and makes a nice connection with the book title. Listen to the song, you will like it.
