Bestselling Authors Ashley & JaQuavis Visit To MS: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

(Sat. September 24, 2011) Thanks to the members of Books and Beignets Book Club, Savvy Book Club and supporters of Conversations Book Club for making the first visit of New York Times Bestselling authors Ashley and JaQuavis to Mississippi a success.

The special day began with a booksigning/meet & greet at Books-A-Million in Jackson, MS. There fans of the husband & wife duo were able to get their own personal copies of books signed, purchase the books they were missing and chat with two of their favorite authors.

From there the two had dinner at Appetizers Restaurant in Pearl, MS where they discussed their journey with book club president Cyrus Webb and gave some sage advice to up-and-coming author Mississippi Slim.

Thanks goes out to Donna Terrence, Cash Money Content, Books-A-Million Bookstore, Appetizers Restaurant, Sonya Ward of Books and Beignets, Rose Wright of Savvy Book Club and all of those who made the day one for the literary history books.

Mississippi Prepares To Welcome Some Of The Literary Best

Since November 2006 Conversations Book Club has worked with literary partners from across the world to bring the state of Mississippi some of the best authors in the industry and encourage the importance of reading. Over the next couple of weeks the Magnolia State will have two more opportunities.

On Saturday, September 24, 2011 New York Times Bestselling authors Ashley and JaQuavis will be making their first visit to Mississippi in two events that are sure to bring out fans from across the state and beyond.

From 1-4p.m. the Cash Money Content couple will be at Books-A-Million (4950 I-55 N) in Jackson, MS signing copies of their books and meeting readers. Then they will travel with Conversations Book Club to a meet and greet held at Appetizers Restaurant (3000 Hwy 80 E) in Pearl, MS from 5-7p.m. Bring your copies of their books to get them signed and to take your pictures.

And if that wasn't enough bestselling author and Jackson State University Alum Sylvester Stephens will be back in Mississippi on Friday, October 7, 2011 signing copies of his books at Books-A-Million (4950 I-55 N) in Jackson, MS from 5-7p.m. This will be perfect for those Jackson State fans who are in town for the Homecoming weekend.

Conversations Book Club's Online Chapter Returns In Oct. 2011

When Conversations Book Club began in November 2006 it was with three members and a telephone. The co-ed reading group started in Mississippi by Cyrus Webb and founding member Stanley Clark was designed as a place where readers of all backgrounds could come together and discuss books directly with the author present either on a conference call or in person. It quickly grew from there to meetings in Memphis, New Orleans and Montgomery, all following the same pattern.

Cyrus Webb is pleased to announce the return of such book discussion with the re-launch of the online chapter of Conversations Book Club in October. The weekly meetings will be Saturdays @ 7p.m. et(6p.m. ct/4p.m. pt) beginning Sat. October 1, 2011, and will be open to anyone who would like to join the conversation. At the scheduled time interested parties will simply visit www.blogtalkradio.com/conversationslive to talk with the author via the message board or join the discussion over the phone by calling 347.426.3645. The author of the book will be a part of the discussion the entire hour and answer YOUR QUESTIONS with Webb serving as the moderator.

The first book the reading group will discuss is GEORGIA JUSTICE by author Jackie Carpenter. Below are the books and authors joining this special book club in the upcoming weeks:

10/01 --- "Georgia Justice" by Jackie Carpenter
10/08 --- "Destined To Live, Despite Me" by Yolanda Shanks
10/15 --- "Something Inside Of Me" by Chitoka Webb
10/22 --- "Teenie" by Christopher Grant
10/29 --- "My Daddy The Devil and Me" by Debra Ann Brown-Davis
11/05 --- "The Playful and Powerful Warrior Within You!" by GJ Reynolds
11/12 --- "What A Wonderful World" by Ricki Riccardi
11/19 --- "Incognito" by Michael Sidney Fosberg
11/26 --- "Manufacturing Hysteria" by Jay Feldman
12/17 --- "Louisa" by Richard Emmel

Make plans now to attend these special meetings either online or by phone. It is the hope of Cyrus Webb and Conversations Book Club that each week will be an opportunity for you not only to get your questions answered but to introduce those who "attend" to new authors and fellow readers.
