Barnes & Noble Creekwalk Village Book Signing

We Barnes_and_Noble_Creekwalk_Villagehad the pleasure of doing a book signing at the Barnes & Noble Creekwalk Village store in Plano, TX on December 5th from 2-4 p.m.  It was great meeting people and telling them about General Smith. We learned about their interests in history and shared our adventures in researching and writing this book. I hope we will have the pleasure of doing more of these events in the future.
