Writer Important For Moreland to Come to CABSE
Sara Jane Skinner Taught Lewis Grizzard; and Wrote The Mill
     One of the most interesting guest speakers to address the Coweta Writers Group was Sara Jane Skinner of Moreland.  She has the distinction of being Lewis Grizzard's high school English teacher and of being the author of one of the most important works about Coweta County's history, The Mill, which is the story of the Moreland Mill, once very important for Moreland's economy and now one of Moreland's most important museums.  In case anyone is wondering -- Yes, she is also the mother of the famous Times-Herald reporter, Winston Skinner!
     Sara Jane Skinner is still a very spunky lady so it is no surprise that even thought she is now elderly that she will be one of the writers participating in the first ever Coweta Authors Book Signing Extravaganza (CABSE) being held on the third weekend in September.  All Coweta authors of a published book have been invited and eighteen have so far agreed to attend, with the total expected to reach around 20 -22.  The CABSE will be a special feature of the New Grantville Days Festival, which will be held on Main Street in Grantville, a small city in southern Coweta County at Exit 35 on Interstate 85.  The Signing will be held on Saturday September 15 from 10 AM through 5 PM and on Sunday September 16 from 12 Noon through 5 PM.  This CABSE will provide anyone attending the Festival an opportunity to meet Coweta's authors and to obtain autographed copies of their books.  Information on the CABSE is available from its Co-ordinator Forrest Schultz at 770-583-3258 or
     Sara Jane Skinner can be reached at  Information on the New Grantville Days Festival is available from its Chairman Sandra Luttrell at 770-583-9013 or
