Richard Grant Book Signing Was A Success

The Winston County Library had a great crowd at lunch today for the Richard Grant book talk/book signing. He talked about his two travel/adventure books, God’s Middle Finger: Into the Lawless Heart of the Sierra Madre, and Crazy River: Exploration and Folly in East Africa. He also talked about his newest book, Dispatches From Pluto, about living in the small town of Pluto, MS (between Tchula and Yazoo City) and his experiences in learning about the people and culture of the Mississippi Delta. Mr. Grant is from England. He and his wife fell in love with Mississippi and now live in Jackson, MS. “It was a great pleasure having Richard here to give a book talk. He is fascinating and has led a very adventurous life so far,” commented librarian Beth Edwards. “It will be so interesting to read about his future adventures!”
