15th Author Extravaganza at Main Street Books

This coming Saturday, Main Street Books will host their 15th (!) annual author extravaganza, which is always a blast — readers, writers, book lovers, and book sellers come together for a relaxed evening of conversations, signings, and most importantly, snickerdoodles. It’s always a joy to represent the Hattiesburg history book, as every year folks with deep roots in the area (or ancestors involved in its founding) show up and chew the fat. The party runs from 4-7pm on Saturday, December 8.
