The day (Friday, May 30, 2008) started off with a visit by Books-A-Million in Jackson, MS where she was greeted by management and signed stock.
From there is was on to the Willie Morris Library in Jackson, MS. There she met with members of the Savvy Book Club, signed copies of their books and met the staff.
The Northside Library in Jackson, MS was the next stop of the day. Conversations Book Club donated a copy of the book HEAVEN SENT to the library, and we were met by Savvy Book Club President Rose Wright before leaving.
The Wal-Mart on HWY 18 in Jackson, MS was the next stop of the day. This was an exciting couple of hours where we were able to literally sell every book available. Thanks to store manager Eddie Robinson and his staff for making this event a great experience.
The final public event of the day was a meet and greet at Richard Wright Library in Jackson, MS. Ms. Debra Gilbert took care of us as usual, and it was great to meet the patrons and even give advice to aspiring authors as well. To show our appreciation, Conversations Book Club donated a copy of Dynah's book HEAVEN SENT to the library.
Dynah was able to end the day with dinner with Savvy Book Club, and they had a chance to enjoy some "one on one" time with the author.
We appreciate all of the support. Conversations was not able to travel to ATL for the "Book Lovers' Day", however, we look forward to joining the readers there soon.

We started off the weekend on Friday, May 16, 2008 with our literary partner, the Wal-Mart on HWY 18 in Jackson, MS (http://www.walmartconversations.com). With the support of the store, the books were flying off the table, and I think it is safe to say that Tony picked up some new fans.
From there we continued our success at the Richard Wright Library during our meet and greet there. As always Ms. Debra Gilbert and the staff showed their support---and even after having a bad day another of our literary partners, Ms. Rose Wright of Savvy Book Club, stopped by to meet the author.
After leaving the Richard Wright Library, it was only appropriate that we take the picture below of the man for whom the it was named. This is from the walls of the Smith Robertson Museum downtown Jackson. Incidentally, Wright is one of Lindsay's favorite authors and the two share a birthday!
On Saturday, May 17, 2008 Lindsay and his wife joined book club members Cyrus A. Webb and Voncele Savage along with the hosts of the talk show NAKED CONVERSATIONS and Hiphop and Books headliner G-Money to begin the journey to New Orleans. There they took part in a planning meeting that focused on the Hiphop and Books tour, another initiative of Conversations Book Club. Valuable information was discussed and ideas to make the project even more of a success were shared.
From there it was on to our literary partner, Borders in Metairie, where we had our monthly book club discussion with Lindsay. Joining us for the discussion was platinum-selling recording artist/Bestselling author Corey "C-Murder" Miller and members of his TRU family.
Another great weekend, and it was all made possible because of YOU.
Thank you for your support. For more information about bestselling author Tony Lindsay, visit http://www.tonylindsay.net. As always: ENJOY YOUR DAY, ENJOY YOUR LIFE, ENJOY YOUR WORLD. C'mon: what are you waiting for? JOIN THE ADDICTION: Get hooked on books! http://www.thebestbookclub.info.
