Black Warriors Curse Author Joe Harless Coming to CABSE
     Until two years ago Joe Harless of Newnan was known as the founder of the Harless Performance Guild job training company and as an educational theorist who set forth his principles in The Eden Conspiracy.  In 2005 in the conclusion of his speech to the Coweta Writers Group, he dropped a bombshell -- he had written a novel Black Warriors Curse, which was published soon afterward.  Then this year there was the dramatic announcement in Variety that the film rights had been purchased by a Hollywood motion picture company.  The story is based on the lore about the Indian tribe near where Harless grew up in Alabama.  So now Harless is equally known -- or maybe even better known -- as the novelist who wrote this fascinating story.
     There will be an opporunity to meet Harless and acquire an autographed copies of his books at the first ever Coweta Authors Book Signing Extravaganza (CABSE) next month to which all Coweta County authors of a published book have been invited.  There are twenty so far who have agreed to come with the total expected to be about 22.  The CABSE will be held during these time periods:  Saturday September 15 from 10 AM through 5 PM and Sunday September 16 from 12 Noon through 5 PM.  The CABSE will be a special feature of this year's New Grantville Days Festival, which is held on Main  Street in Grantville, a small city in southern Coweta County at Exit 35 on I-85.  Information on Grantville Day, the original name of this festival, is available on their website at http://grantvilleday.tripod,com.  Info on the CABSE is available from its Co-ordinator, Forrest Schultz at 770-583-3258 or schultz_forrest@yahoo.com.
