The Place By Coweta Author Bart Gibson Is Published


     Bart Gibson has lived in Coweta County for some time -- first in Moreland and now in Newnan -- but his roots are in Meriwether County, where he can trace his ancestors all the way back to the original settlers there.  It was the knowledge of, and influence of, these ancestors that eventually led him to write a novel of the rural South which is set in a sort of fictionalized Meriwether County during the close of World War II.  Gibson dedicates this novel, The Place, to all of his extended family members who have served in the military, but especially to his great-uncles who fought in World War II and served as the inspiration for the story.  Its publication now brings to four the total of known books published by Coweta authors so far this year.   

       Bart Gibson is the newest member of the Coweta Writers Group and the most recent example of the proliferation of new authors in Coweta County.  His book can be purchased from Scotts Book Store on the Courthouse Square in downtown Newnan or it can be checked out of the Newnan Library on Hospital Road (which is now called the A. Mitchell Powell, Jr. Public Library).  Announcements are expected soon about articles, reviews, and book signings for The Place
