GWTW Expert Herb Bridges Coming to CABSE
     There are so many interesting things about Coweta County that it would take a whole book to discuss all of them.  One category of interesting things is all of the Cowetans who have accomplished great things.  One of these is Mr. Herb Bridges of Sharpsburg, who is one of the world's top authorities on Gone With The Wind as well as on of the greatest GWTW memorabilia collectors of all time.  And he accomplished all of this not as some kind of professional but as a hobbyist.  Several years ago most of his memorabilia was sold for several million dollars by none other than the famous Christie's auction in New York City.  Bridges has not only spoken and been interviewed numerous times throughout his lifetime but he has also written several books on his favorite movie.  Bridges is also interested in the history of his favorite county -- Coweta -- and has also written several books on that subject.
     There will be an opportunity to meet Bridges and acquire autographed copies of these books at the Coweta Authors Book Signing Extravaganza (CABSE) which will be held during the third weekend of September as a special feature of the New Grantville Days Festival on the Main Street of Grantville, which is located at Exit 35 on Interstate 85.  The CABSE will be held from 10 AM through 5 PM on Saturday September 15 and from 12 Noon through 5 PM on Sunday September 16.  Info on the CABSE is available from its Co-ordinator Forrest Schultz at 770-583-3258 or schultz_forrest@yahoo.com.  Info on Grantville Day, the original name of this festival, is available on its website http://grantvilleday.tripod.com
