Workman To Sign Books At General Store
Posting Date: 05/22/2012
Former news editor and local author Morris Workman will be on hand for a meet and greet at The General Store on Thursday, May 24, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Workman will be signing copies of his new novel "Howl of a Thousand Winds," which was published by Sunbury Press in April. The book was #1 on the Sunbury Bestsellers List, according to publisher Lawrence Knorr.
The book tracks a storm that is moving across the country, leaving a trail of mysterious deaths and destruction. While investigating, a reporter learns that it's not the storm that's killing people, but something that comes with the storm.
"I've known since I was in the fifth grade that I wanted to write books," Workman said. "It took me 50 years to get here, but I guess the message is that you're never too old to start a new career or chase your dream."
Copies will be available for purchase at the General Store on the day of the book signing, and are already for sale at the store located at the corner of Mesquite Blvd. and Sandhill Blvd.
For more information online, go to www.morrisworkman.com, or call the General Store at 346-7977.
