Countdown

I hope to see you this Thursday at the official launch event for Fading Ads of Birmingham! It's at Alabama Booksmith, located at 2626 19th Place South in Homewood, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. If you can't make it to this event, be sure to visit Alabama Booksmith anyway. Every copy of the book sold there will be signed. (And stay tuned for news about future signings.)

A New Page

CharlesBookMy book arrived last week, and it was a surreal to flip through it for the first time. It had seemed something of an abstract notion while I was researching and writing it, so it was exciting to finally see it in a tangible form. Putting it on a shelf alongside other Birmingham history books was another happy moment. I'm thrilled with how it turned out.

I can't wait for all of you to see it and interact with it and learn more about the fading ads and Birmingham's history. Let me know what you think, and please send in any questions. I'll try to answer them here on the blog. I also plan to feature some local ghost signs that didn't make it into the book. So come back soon!
