We were honored to be able to meet Chris Coppernoll Barbara King's family friend. We were all excited to hear about his new book "PROVIDENCE". I gave him the floor at the end of the book club meeting so he could tell us what his book was about and when it was expected to hit the book shelves.

Chris Coppernoll was in town to MC a benefit concert for Olivia King. The Benefit concert was to raise money for the organ transplant she needs along with some other children who have silimar medical struggles. Chris sold his books at the benefit concert before and after the concert. He was available to talk with folks and sign their books.

Barbara King is a member of our book club we were so delighted that she was able to share her friend Chris and his book with our group. THANK YOU BARBARA.

I asked Chris to consider coming back to officially SPEAK to our book club after we had the chance to read "Providence" his new book. He agreed - Hooray!!
The original Pager Turner book club that met at Borders Book Store near the Mall of Ga. "EVEN NOW" by Karen Kingsbury was the book we discussed that night. It was interesting to hear Chris's reaction to our group discussion. He got to hear first hand what we talk about before the author comes to speak to our group. I'm sure he was taking mental notes. It was fun to watch his face as we discussed the book and give our opinion . It was a really fun night. Page Turners went on to become Ladies of "HOPE READERS" and meets at Life Way Mall of GA store.
I have KAREN KINGSBURY on my T- Shirt. My husband blessed me with a trip to TN to actually meet Karen Kingsbury at Life Way Christian Store in Nashville earlier this year. The whole family went and got to meet her. The picture on the front of the T-shirt is of my whole family with Karen Kingsbury after she signed my books. It was a thrill to meet her. She is delightful. My husband had that picture put onto a shirt for me. Words on top of the shirt say "I WORK FOR BOOKS!". How true that is!!! :):)
