Children's Author Ann Westmoreland Coming to CABSE 
     Ann Westmoreland, who was then living in Newnan, began her writing career with a children's story based on an actual occurrence in her family.  This story,
Aunt Annie's Ghost, was so much fun for her to write and was so much admired by its readers, that she wrote a sequel, named after one of its characters, Pete.  She then soon followed this with a third story The Runaways.  At the writing workshop called The Writers Block in Newnan, Ann not only learned writing skills, she also learned the importance of promoting one's books thru book signings.  Therefore it is not surprising that Ann will be one of the participating writers in the Coweta Authors Book Signing Extravaganza (CABSE) which will be held in September.  This will not be as easy as it sounds because Ann has since moved to Buchanan and is recuperating from triple bypass surgery but she is a very determined woman so we can be sure she will make it!
There are so far 18 Coweta authors who have agreed to come with the total expected to be about 20 - 22.
     The CABSE will be a special feature of the New Grantville Days Festival which will be held on Main Street in Grantville the third weekend in September.  The authors will be seated behind name plates at a long row of tables.  The Book Signing will begin on Saturday September 15 at 10 AM and on Sunday September 16 at 12 Noon.  The table will close each day at 5 PM.  The purpose of the Signing is to provide the public with an opportunity to meet the authors and to obtain autographed copies of their books.  Admission to the Festival and the Signing is free of charge.  Grantville is a small city in southern Coweta County at Exit 35 on Interstate 85.  Information about the New Grantville Days Festival, which formerly was called Grantville Day, is available from its Chairman Sandra Lutrell at 770-583-9013 or at
     Information about the CABSE is available from its Coordinator, Forrest Schultz, at 770-583-3258 or
